This study brings us into the distinctive world of Nigerian oil workers in their daily confrontations with the neo-Colonial state and foreign capital. It reveals how oil workers devise and execute survival strategies against a very formidable alliance of a state which is almost totally dependent on oil rents, and oil corporations whose main operational motivation is the maximization of profits and control of the market.
