Energy: Powering the past, Present, and Future

Energy: Powering the past, Present, and Future

by Julie Kerr Casper

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-10 Casper presents an overview of the history of energy, renewable and nonrenewable resources, energy development, as well as information on management and conservation. A few full-color photographs, diagrams, and sidebars break up the large blocks of plain text. Although this book offers more depth than most standard science series, it omits dates on many of the statistical charts, the time line stops in the mid-1990s, and most of the suggestions for further reading are at least 10 years old. These serious flaws weaken what would otherwise be a worthwhile addition.-Michael Giller, South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville
