Routes of Power : Energy and Modern America Paperback / softback
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.
