"Well written, uniquely thought-provoking, and incisive, Hydrocarbon Nation makes important connections that provide new insights into humans’ history of energy management."

""Hogan... writes passionately of weaning ourselves off fossil fuels to solve the looming climate crisis... By not implicitly demonizing hydrocarbons, Hydrocarbon Nation is much more persuasive... Bracing and opinionated, Hydrocarbon Nation is a worthwhile exploration backward and forward."

"Hogan gives us plenty to think about. His work knitting together political cycles with energy revolutions (that span industry, agriculture, transportation, and electrification, or what he calls the innate revolutions) is thought provoking. It produces a creative narrative that ties energy history to banking policy, wealth and income inequality, international diplomacy, environmental health, and other topics over two centuries... Hydrocarbon Nation provides a useful reflection on how political developments from Hamiltonianism to Trumpism have something elemental to do with energy infrastructure."
