Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up -As well as discussing topics related to energy, this work serves as a guide to the literature of energy issues, legislation, and policy through the inclusion of numerous primary sources and an extensive annotated bibliography. The first section, "At Issue," consists of an overview of related concerns and a discussion of the different types of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources since prehistory. A discussion of these topics from a U.S. and then from a global perspective focuses on six key countries: China, Germany, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Venezuela. The second section presents primary-source documents such as laws, treaties, and newspaper articles, from the same previously mentioned perspectives, and international treaties such as the Kyoto Protocol. The last part informs beginning researchers how to find and evaluate information relating to energy supply, use, conservation, equity, etc. This is followed by "Facts and Figures"-charts and graphs from a range of sources such as BP and Sandia National Laboratories; "Key Players A to Z" (brief biographical notes on those mentioned in the book as well as other scientists, policy makers, and statesmen); and a valuable directory of "Organizations and Agencies." The advantage of this work over other titles on energy is that it combines basic facts with a guide to doing research from print sources and online.-Judith V. Lechner, Auburn University, AL
