Routes of Power : Energy and Modern America, Paperback / softback Book


The fossil fuel revolution is usually a tale of advances in energy production.

Christopher Jones tells a tale of advances in energy access--canals, pipelines, wires delivering cheap, abundant power to cities at a distance from production sites.

Between 1820 and 1930 these new transportation networks set the U.S. on a path to fossil fuel dependence.
