Daniel Yergin: The Quest: Energy, Security, & the Remaking of the Modern World
"This fascinating saga is the definitive book on the most important of global issues, the quest for sustainable sources of energy."
Walter Isaacson, president & CEO of The Aspen Institute

In this gripping account of the quest for the energy the world needs, Yergin proves conclusively that energy is the primary engine of global and economic change, and
Is crucial to the battle over climate change. From the jammed streets of Beijing, the shores of the Caspian Sea, and the escalating conflicts in the Mideast to Capitol Hill and Silicon Valley, Yergin takes us inside the decisions and choices shaping our future. He  clarifies the drama of oil  the struggle for access to it, the battle for control, the insecurity of supply, the consequences of its use, its impact on the global economy, and the geopolitics dominating it  will continue to shape this world. He tells the inside stories and he takes on the toughest questions: Will we run out of oil? Are China and the US destined to conflict over oil? He reveals the surprising history of nuclear and coal power, electricity, and natural gas. He investigates renewables (biofuels and wind) as well as solar energy

Daniel Yergin, one of the most influential voices on energy in the world, is also a highly respected authority on international politics and economics. He received the United States Energy Award for "lifelong achievements in energy and the promotion of international understanding. He also received the Pulitzer Prize for The Prize, a NY Times' number one bestseller that was made into a PBS/BBC series seen by many millions. He is the chairman of HIS Cambridge Energy Research Associates, and serves as CNBC's global energy expert.
