Integrates and synthesizes concepts pertaining to energy and resource quality, originally derived in the natural and physical sciences, and applies them to human economic systems. Examines how energy is used to transform natural resources into economic goods and analyzes the economic implications of fluctuating energy costs. Applies the concept of Energy Return on Investment to measure economic effects of rising energy costs and to evaluate alternatives. Treats characteristics of alternative energy sources, environmental effects of energy extraction and use, and management of energy resources.

Review:

"The entire text is a pleasure to read. This is a first class textbook in which all the major socioeconomic energy issues are examined in a way which makes the reader reassess his own position and attitudes. Highly suitable for energy-related courses at the university level and a valuable source book for libraries." (Energy World 1986)
