The Oxford Handbook of Energy and Society offers a collection of contemporary sociological research, highlighting the growing instability and disruptions associated with fossil-fuel-dependence, and the emerging challenges and innovations associated with a transition away from fossil fuels. Regional case studies of different energy resources from around the world are featured, as are the roles of politics, markets, technology, social movements, and consumers,
all contributing to a complex systems perspective on the uncertain future of energy-society relations.
