From Library Journal:

Is electric power a true "commodity," and should it remain in the hands of the power industry? A growing number of consumer groups across the nation are redefining power as a "service" that should be managed as a basic resource in a "least-cost" approach. Consumer unrest stems from the overbuilding and overfinancing and questionable business sense surrounding nuclear power plants, but what's in question is the future structure of the industry. Rudolph, a professor of community planning, and Ridley, an investigative journalist, skillfully explore the power industry's 100-year history and politics that have brought us to this point. The book is well researched and documented. Recommended for all readers interested in the economic and environmental stability of our country. Diane M. Brown, University of California, Berkeley
