Energy, Politics, and the Modern World: a Conversation with Daniel Yergin

In the first half of a two-part podcast, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Daniel Yergin visits with YCELP Research Assistant Joanna Dafoe about his recent book, The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World. The book, a follow-up to 2008’s The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power, examines the energies that have been foundational to civilization and the energies and technologies competing to replace them, all while highlighting how energy drives global political and economic change and conflict.
