Members of the Society’s Energy Geographies Research Group, have published Energy and Society: a Critical Perspective, the first major text to provide a critical treatment of energy issues and encourage new thinking on development, consumption and vulnerability in order to assess the significance of energy systems in both the global North and South.
Co-authored by leading researchers Gavin Bridge, Stewart Barr, Stefan Bouzarovski, Michael Bradshaw, Ed Brown, Harriet Bulkeley, and Gordon Walker, the book uses a variety of case studies, examples, activities and discussion points, to highlight connections between energy, socio-economic and political processes such as globalisation, urbanisation and international development. Its accessible style and range of features means the book is ideal to assist in teaching on these topics and is an important new resource for undergraduate and Masters students in geography and related fields.
The Society is particularly pleased that the book is, in part, the result of the formation of the Energy Geographies Research Group back in 2011. We are delighted to be able to support the dissemination of knowledge in this way.
Energy and Society: a Critical Perspective is published by Routledge.
