"Biodiesel America"
By Josh Tickell
TP 359.B46 T53 2006

Before September 11, 2001, few Americans had heard the term "energy security." Now, with soaring fuel prices, rising tension in the Middle East, and natural disasters threatening U.S. petroleum production, the need for an immediate solution to our oil-dependence has become a national priority. In this book, Tickell shatters the myths that surround America's oil dependence and illuminates the solutions.

"Breach of Faith"
By Jed Horne
HV 636 2005 .N4 H66 2006

Writing from the eve of Katrina, Jed Horne follows the unfolding disaster through characters whose lives have been forever changed by the storm. At the same time, he renders in brilliant detail the tragedy of a nation that has forgotten its poor and neglected its civic defenses. This book bears remarkable witness to the event that changed our city and impacted every life within its range.
