Ken Wiwa. Political activist and journalist, Ken Wiwa describes the effect of petroleum exploitation on Nigeria's Ogoni people and environment. In this country that's the sixth largest oil producer, but one of the poorest in the world (ironically, Nigeria has to import its gasoline supplies), Wiwa recounts his efforts to develop and support clean energy technologies and spur a new information economy in his homeland.

At 416 pages, this text-heavy tome could seem daunting to the casual reader. But the editors have taken care to ensure that the contributors pose their arguments in everyday language, not in academic or scientific jargon, making a potentially frustrating book an interesting and compelling read. And threaded between each chapter of the book is the history of energy, traced from 4.5 billion B.C. to present day. These energy tidbits give readers fascinating facts, and provide brief respites between the heavy-hitting, information-rich essays. Fueling the Future offers thoughtful discussions of the world's myriad energy issues that will provoke and stimulate your mind.
