Excerpt from Baku: An Eventful History

For a decade, Baku had in its modern industry and ancient customs an unnatural combination of forces which were bound sooner or later to convulse humanity. In the days when Charles Marvin wrote his Region of the Eternal Fire, the new conditions had not reached their zenith and the industry had not attained anything like its present dimensions. Naturally, the throwing together of an unmix able mixture of races and spiritual influences and such an essentially modern commercial enterprise was bound to provide material for much stirring history.

Although necessarily in parts technical and statistical - and consequently, it is to be hoped, of permanent value to oil men in all parts of the world - this book is largely a product of the violent upheaval resulting from the collision of the new and old and an incredible amount of bitterness born of race antagonism and trade rivalry.
