Consuming Power: A Social History of American Energies

by

How did the United States become the world's largest consumer of energy? David Nye uses energy as a touchstone to examine--from colonial times to recent years--how ordinary people's everyday activities changed as new energy systems were constructed. The result is a social history of America as seen through the lens of energy consumption. 10 illustrations.
