The Energy of Slaves: Oil and the New Servitude by Andrew Nikiforuk is an evocative and informative book beginning with a brief history of slavery and evolving into a description of how we have created our present energy crisis and the environmental consequences of that crisis. In it, I learned much about how energy dominates so much of what we do and the problems we face because of its misuse.
