James Marriott and Mika Minio-Paluello's The Oil Road explores the murky realities behind the glittering facade of British Petroleum's thousand mile oil road from the Caspian Sea to the City of London.

It's a grimly fascinating story of high finance, corruption, displaced communities and environmental degradation, revealing the inevitable but usually hidden costs of globalisation. James Marriott and Emma Hughes of the campaigning organisation 
Platform will talk about the book and about the future of energy, with Terry Macalister, the Guardian's energy editor.


This event had previously been billed as taking place with Paul Mason of Newsnight, but he has had to pull out because of recording commitments. A short pre-record by Paul Mason made specially for the event will be played on the evening.
