Roy L. Nersesian's reference is more timely than ever with new material on biofuels, an expanded section on sustainability and sustainable energy, and updated figures and tables.

Roy L. Nersesian has spent most of his professional career observing the energy industry as part of his involvement in energy transportation. He is an adjunct professor at Columbia University's Center for Energy, Marine Transportation and Public Policy in the School of Monmouth University. He brings a fresh perspective to the energy business—where it was and where it is heading.
"This is a masterful compendium of current knowledge about the sources, distribution and distinctive voice clarifies complex technical issues, from geology to economics, enlivens history, from the formation of prehistoric peat bogs to the cloak and dagger of early oil exploration, and illuminates the policy dilemmas we face today, from waste management and climate change to economic development and renewable energy sources. There is no better single introduction to the full range of issues that will confront all of us-energy producers, consumers, and policymakers alike-in the coming decades. "Lisa Anderson, James T. Shotwell Professor of International Relations,Dean, School of International Public Affairs, Columbia University" "We are fortunate to have this book. It would be important anytime in recent history, but it could not be more important than today. Businessman and educator Roy Nersesian paints a clear picture of an energy hungry world. It is an important, immediate read, and a critical, unbiased reference." —Paul G. Gaffney II, President, Monmouth University, Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.) Commissioner, U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy, 2000-2004 "With broad strokes, Nersesian paints the rich, intriguing development of what is arguably the most important industry . . . .This approach allows him to reach a broad lay audience, and to introduce the myriad subtopics and subplots that define energy structures today. . . . An engaging introduction to a very pertinent subject." -Choice"
