Hubbert's Peak The Impending World Oil Shortage. Kenneth S. Deffeyes. Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 2001. 220 pp. $24.95, £17.95. ISBN 0-691-09086-6.

Estimating that world oil production will peak before 2008 and then be unable to keep up with demand, Deffeyes argues that it is now time to develop alternative energy sources and conservation measures.
