The relationship between energy and the environment has been the basis of many studies over the years, as has the relationship between energy and development, yet both of these approaches may produce distortions. In the first edition of this book, Professor Goldemberg pioneered the study of all three elements in relation to one another. With contributions from Oswaldo Lucon, this second edition has been expanded and updated to cover how energy is related to the major challenges of sustainability faced by the world today. The book starts by conceptualizing energy, and then relates it to human activities, to existing natural resources and to development indicators. It then covers the main environmental problems, their causes and possible solutions. Disaggregating national populations by income and by how different income groups consume energy, the authors identify the differences between local, regional and global environmental impacts, and can thus ascertain who is responsible for them. Finally, they discuss general and specific policies to promote sustainable development in energy. New coverage is included of today's pressing issues, including security, environmental impact assessment and future climate change/renewable energy regimes. The authors also cover all major new international agreements and technological developments. Energy, Environment and Development is the result of many years of study and practical experience in policy formulation, discussion and implementation in these fields by the authors. Written in a technical yet accessible style, the book is aimed at students on a range of courses, as well as non-energy specialists who desire an overview of recent thought in the area.

It is a good review of basic issues. Earthscan (IIED?) well packaged a number of old lectures re-selling them as a book on energy and development. As a matter of fact, at the very best is an undergraduate introduction to basic concepts. The book is insufficient in the way it deals with technical stuff such as formulas, etc (no examples, no case studies, no link to a website on which certain things could be practiced) and too superficial for what it concerns the relationship between energy and development... such as sustainability or the relationship between energy poverty and human development.

The right book and the right edition for a good price.

By far the most comprehensive global overview of the inter-relationships between energy, environment and human development. Replete with key data, charts and diagrams. This volume integrates past and current debates on energy vis-à-vis income levels, technological choices, potentials for developing countries to "leapfrog" obsolete models of industrialism, the need to correct GDP and economic models, the hidden costs of energy, pollution, deforestation and the relevance of population and lifestyles. A tour de force - including a timeline of human use of energy from 5000 BC and the discovery of fire through to the climate change debates of 2009.
