Item description for Historical Energy Statistics: Global, Regional and National Trends Since Industrialization (World Scientific Series on Energy and Resource Economics) by T. S. Gopi Rethinaraj...
Current literature on international energy statistics is scattered amongst a variety of sources using different physical units and geography of reporting units. Comprehensive production and consumption data are only readily available in consistent units for some countries for more recent decades. This essential book presents a comprehensive statistical survey of global and regional energy trends since early industrialization, primarily based on 19th- and 20th-century records from various European and Western Hemisphere sources. Besides containing up-to-date information, it also traces trends from before the 1980s in global, regional and national energy histories. The time series data from earlier years are systematically patched to current political boundaries and officially reported data since the formation of the UN and changes since the end of the Cold War. The result of this careful reconstruction is a consistent country-by-country time series dataset for production and consumption of commercially-traded primary energy sources. A first in its field, this reference volume is an invaluable resource for those working on energy, environment and climate issues.
