Classic Energy Books

  • Carbon Democracy: political power in the age of oil  
      
    Oil is a curse, it is often said, that condemns the countries producing it to an existence defined by war, corruption and enormous inequality. Carbon Democracy tells a more complex story, arguing that no nation escapes the political consequences of our collective dependence on oil.
  • Soft Energy Paths: towards a durable peace  
      
    Soft Energy Paths provides a comparison of two energy paths ("soft" vs. "hard") that are distinguished by their antithetical social implications.
  • Energy Politics  
      
    Energy Politics argues that energy and politics are intrinsically linked. Modern life is heavily dependent on access to energy. Shaffer provides a broad introduction to the ways in which energy affects domestic and regional political developments and foreign policy.
  • Energy Myths and Realities: Bringing Science to the Energy Policy Debate  
      
    There are many misconceptions about the future of global energy often presented as fact by the media, politicians, business leaders, activists, and even scientists "wasting time and money and hampering the development of progressive energy policies". Energy Myths and Realities: Bringing Science to the Energy Policy Debate debunks the most common fallacies to make way for a constructive, scientific approach to the global energy challenge.
  • A Policy of Discontent : The Making of a National Energy Strategy
    Energy Myths and Realities represents the history and comprehensive analysis of 65 years of energy policy making. It provides an understanding of the forces that shape national energy policy, explains how the oil, gas, and electric sectors have been deregulated, and analyzes the historic, geographic conflict of interests that shape and distort national energy policy debate.
