Editorial Reviews


"Energy Resources provides the right mix of technical information and economic and social data necessary to introduce college students to the multiple challenges facing the global energy system. The text is accessible, free of unnecessary jargon, comprehensive in its coverage, and balanced in its discussions, and up to date. It is exactly what I need to get my students to start thinking intelligently about energy politics and policy choices."--Daniel Marien, University of Central Florida

"This text is very useful to instructors who are teaching energey courses for non-scientific audiences. It introduces students to complex energy issues through simple language and engaging illustrations"--Pankaj Lal, Montclair State University

"Reisser's text is a great resource for faculty. Because it covers politics, economics, energy science, climate science, and history, Energy Resoures is well rounded, organized, and written with undergraduate students in mind."--Brandon M. Hoover, Rowan University

"What sets Energy Resources apart is that the authors don't get "bogged down" in the technicalities of the science of energy sources, but instead they intertwine social, economic, and political contexts. No other text accomplishes this nearly as well."--Ned J. Knight, Linfield College
