Energy Policy in the U.S.: Politics, Challenges and Prospects for Change

Latest Publication Title

Energy Policy in the U.S.: Politics, Challenges and Prospects for Change, with David E. McNabb, CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, 2011

Publication Description

In an effort to provide greater awareness of the necessary policy decisions facing our elected and appointed officials, Energy Policy in the U.S.: Politics, Challenges, and Prospects for Change presents an overview of important energy policies and the policy process in the United States, including their history, goals, methods of action, and consequences.  In the first half of the book, the authors frame the energy policy issue by reviewing U.S. energy policy history, identifying the policy-making players, and illuminating the costs, benefits, and economic and political realities of currently competing policy alternatives. The book examines the stakeholders and their attempts to influence energy policy and addresses the role of supply and demand on the national commitment to energy conservation and the development of alternative energy sources.

How did Evergreen help you in your career?

Being on the Evergreen faculty gave me the intellectual freedom to teach a wide variety of subjects, including energy policy, international affairs, and public policy, all of which helped to prepare me to co-author this text.
