The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies
by Richard Heinberg
An excellent and well-researched book on the realities of Peak Oil, overpopulation, and unsustainable economics. I can’t recommended it highly enough. Should be required reading for every college freshman in my opinion. Packed with enough charts and data to make it worthy of your reference shelf, yet lively and empathetic enough to make the subject accessible to all.
