About this product
- DescriptionEnergy is at the top of the list of environmental problems facing industrial society, and is arguably the one that has been handled least successfully, in part because politicians and the public do t understand the physical techlogies, while the engineers and industrialists do t understand the societal forces in which they operate. In this book, Allan Mazur, an engineer and a sociologist, explains energy techlogies for ntechnical readers and analyses the sociology of energy. The book gives an overview of energy policy in industrialised countries including analysis of climate change, the development of electricity, forms of renewable energy and public perception of the issues. Energy is a key component to environment policy and to the workings of industrial society. This vel approach to energy techlogy and policy makes the book an invaluable inter-disciplinary resource for students across a range of subjects, from environmental and engineering policy, to energy techlogy, public administration, and environmental sociology and ecomics.
