From the Back Cover:

Handbook of Energy, Volume II: Chronologies, Top Ten Lists, and Word Clouds is a comprehensive and authoritative reference book covering all aspects of the major milestones in energy. The book's integrated approach synthesizes information about the historical aspects of energy that is spread across many seemingly disparate fields, content resources, and user communities.

  • Subject-specific chronologies succinctly detail the seminal events in specific areas of energy
  • Top ten lists, each authored by an expert in the field, provide the ten most significant issues, events, and people on that topic
  • Word clouds provide a visual representation of energy-related text data for quickly perceiving the most prominent terms

Handbook of Energy, Volume II is designed for both libraries and individuals working in energy, and it serves as a primary method of communication among those communities.
