In the 1970s energy awareness was at its peak. Internationally, people were affected by shortages, and more than ever, they made an effort to understand and conserve energy. Since then, our energy crisis has become more subtle, but no less demanding of our attention and responsibility. Energy issues such as pollution, resource depletion, and nuclear power and waste are problems that demand timely solutions. Introduction to Energy: Resources, Technology, and Society, primarily written as an undergraduate textbook, explores energy issues and the benefits and problems technology has brought us. It approaches crucial questions to bring energy awareness to the forefront in hopes of finding answers. It not only reviews modern energy technologies, but discusses their philosophical and social implications with the aim of developing critical thinking about technology issues. Cassedy and Grossman write from the perspective of critical appreciation, not one of advocacy or prescriptives. The book weighs both the enormous advantages of energy technology, and the burden of responsibility that goes along with it.Introduction to Energy: Resources, Technology, and Society (Cambridge Energy and Environment Series), was published 1990 under ISBN 9780521359412 and ISBN 0521359414.
