    The Department of History and Cultural Studies offers a research profile found nowhere else in Germany. It covers a wide range of different eras, from antiquity to the modern period, and a vast physical area, stretching from Europe and the Middle East to Asia and the Americas.   It's a history of oil on all continents, not just the Middle East. But as such, it is also forcibly a history of the Middle East's most powerful economic and political engine of the 20th century. Yergin's conversational style is a good fit whether he's explaining "OPEC's Imperium" on western economies or the first hints of peak oil theory.
