Energy Supply and Renewable Resources

by Regina Anne Kelly

This reference is designed to be a first-stop resource for high school and undergraduate students. It surveys current energy production and consumption trends and controversies, and draws parallels between the energy challenges faced by the US and several other nations. As with other volumes in the series, the book contains three sections, with an introduction to national and global issues followed by excerpts and full texts of US and international primary source documents. The third section provides research tools, including brief biographies, statistical data, an annotated bibliography, and detailed guidance on researching global energy issues online and in libraries. A chronology and a glossary are also included. Kelly has written on energy for scientific and trade journals. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
