Description

Deals head on with the imminent decline of cheap oil. Shows how oil and war have always been closely related for the past century and how competition to control oil supplies is likely to lead to new resource wars in the Middle East, Central Asia and South Africa. Tracing the crucial role of fossil fuels in the rise of industrialism, the book discusses the degree to which energy alternatives can compensate for oil and recommends a managed transition to a slower-paced, low-energy, sustainable society in the future.
