"Midnight Oil is a political journey through two decades of social struggles, ranging form the oil fields of the Middle East and Africa coal fields of Appalachia and the homes and neighborhoods of America and Europe. Tracing the unifying themes of work, energy, oil, and war, it draws a physiognomy of the planetary proletariat, connecting escaped indentured servants from India to oil workers sabotaging production in the Niger Delta; Gulf War resisters in New York to Kurdish rebels in Iraq; insurrectionary Iranian students to wildcat autoworkers in Detroit; housewifes on rent strike in Italy to Boston burners of midnight oil."
