From the Publisher
In the wake of the quest for an answer, PennWell Corporation has published A Policy of Discontent: The Making of a National Energy Strategy, a new book by Vito A. Stagliano. Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Energy for Policy Analysis under the first Bush administration, Stagliano weaves a powerful tale of how government works and how our nations last energy policy (the Energy Policy Act of 1992) was forged. In this tell-all chronicle, Stagliano takes readers on a journey down the halls of our nations capitol and brings to light what happened behind closed doors in the quest for policy consensus.
