This edition updates the data in the 2001 introductory text on energy resources, use, and technologies. While Hinrichs and Kleinbach (both with State U. of New York, College at Oswego) follow a typical sequence of presenting energy science fundamentals, they emphasize environmental impacts and national and personal commitments to sustainable policies. They include discussion questions about real- world situations, problems, activities, technical appendices, and a glossary. A trial subscription to an online library of articles is available from the publisher. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
