Title: Encyclopedia of energy

Abstract

The McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Energy with its more than 300 articles written by specialists is designed to aid the student, librarian, scientist, engineer, teacher, and lay reader with information on any aspect of energy from the economic and political to the environmental and technological. The Encyclopedia is arranged in two parts. The first part, ''Energy Perspectives,'' has six feature articles: Energy Consumption, Outlook for Fuel Reserves, Exploring Energy Choices, World Energy Economy, U.S. Policies and Politics, and Protecting the Environment. Separate abstracts were prepared for each of these features. The second part, ''Energy Technology,'' with its 300 alphabetically arranged articles, contains information on such subjects as coal mining, nuclear power, laser-induced fusion, wind power, solar power, and hydroelectric power. The articles, some drawn from the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology (3rd ed., 1971) and its Yearbooks (1971-1976), and some written especially for this volume, were selected or suggested by the Board of Consultants. Almost every article opens with a definition of the subject and ends with a bibliography for further reading. The Appendix aids the reader in converting U.S. Customary Units to metric and System International units. The cross-references to other articles and the analytic index interrelate the articles.
