Power Play: The Fight to Control the World’s Electricity
Sharon Beder (au)
An account of the decades-long struggle to wrest control of elec. from public hands. Ranges from early machinations in the halls of Amer. political power, to struggles by local communities in S. Asia to stem the environ. damage being wrought by multinational energy providers. As electrification spread across America and the world in the first half of the 20th cent., private corp. pursued profits from millions of new fee-paying customers. Blocking their path was the widely held view that elec. met an essential need and that it should be regulated -- if not owned outright -- by the public. It was the dawn of modern corp. p.r., and a major chapter in the history of an industry at the heart of modern life. “Sets the stage for understanding recent dereg’n. and the energy debacle.”
