From the Publisher“A fine compendium of scholarship well focused on a city that not only is interesting in itself as a fast-growing monolith but also provides us with cautionary tales easily applied to other urban areas.”

”Energy Metropolis helps us realize that our blinkered rush for energy development has costs that are not at some distance, but are closer to home, next door, right in our backyard. It is sobering to grasp how significantly our daily lives—from our commutes to the patterns of our cities to the hazards we endure during both work and play—are comprised by our endless need for more and more energy.”
"Melosi and Pratt's work is well-written and thoroughly researched. Any scholar interested in business history, urban studies, and environmental history would find this book a valuable resource."
