The main purpose of this work is to identify the most valuable literature sources concerned with rural energy in the Third World. The annotated bibliography provides critical reviews of more than 150 sources and lists 50 others. Two introductory chapters identify a number of important themes related to the understanding of the energy needs of rural people and the organization of the process of technical change needed to generate energy conversion technologies suitable for rural application. The bibliography is unique in focusing on the social science (rather than the technical or scientific) aspects of the rural energy problem.
