Abstract

268 / labour /le travail 67 oil holdings were merged into the new, nationally owned company, Petróleos de Venezuela Sociedad Anónima (pdvsa), it was managed according to the same capitalist principles. Based on interviews and a wide range of documents (company papers, memoirs, newspapers for the Englishspeaking community, and cookbooks [!], among others) Tinker Salas provides ethnographic detail not only about social relations in the camps but also about the companies' internal deliberations regarding both personnel and political influence. With sometimes superabundant detail, he seems reluctant to discard a single anecdote. But the result is a vivid account of both daily life and corporate politics. His analysis of the place of the industry in Venezuelan politics leaves some important questions unanswered. He makes frequent, but brief, references to the power of leftist unions, and shows that the companies opposed them (or, later, tried to coopt them). He gives no detail about their activities, however. The lack of an account of their success or failure as a counterweight to US cultural influence is a big omission. His discussion of nationalization in 1976 is surprisingly cursory. He details the efforts of the major foreign oil companies from the 1930s to
