The Power Surge

Energy, Opportunity, and the Battle for America's Future

Michael Levi

  • A sweeping account of the transformations remaking American energy.
  • An unprecedented combination of on the ground reporting in the United States and around the world and groundbreaking analysis of what the changes in American energy mean for the economy, national security, and the environment.
  • The first major book on energy since booming oil and gas production fundamentally - and controversially - transformed the American energy scene.
  • Authored by one of America's most prominent experts on energy's role in the world.
  • New to this Edition: Includes a new epilogue chronicling the accelerating boom in U.S. oil and gas production and the increasingly intense debates over it - and explaining why a strategy that embraces the best of old and new energy sources still makes sense
