Energy and Society : A Critical Perspective, Paperback Book

Description

Energy and Society is the first major text to provide an extensive critical treatment of energy issues informed by recent research on energy in the social sciences.

Written in an engaging and accessible style it draws new thinking on uneven development, consumption, vulnerability and transition together to illustrate the social significance of energy systems in the global North and South.

The book features case studies, examples, discussion questions, activities, recommended reading and more, to facilitate its use in teaching.

Energy and Society deploys contemporary geographical concepts and approaches but is not narrowly disciplinary.

Its critical perspective highlights connections between energy and significant socio-economic and political processes, such as globalization, urbanisation, international development and social justice; and connects important issues that are often treated in isolation, such as resource availability, energy security, energy access and low-carbon transition. Co-authored by leading researchers and based on current research and thinking in the social sciences, Energy and Society presents a distinctive geographical approach to contemporary energy issues.

It is an essential resource for upper level undergraduates and Masters students in geography, environmental studies, urban studies, energy studies and related fields.
