COAL IN APPALACHIA/AN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

Item Description
Coal, the nation's most abundant fossil fuel and the only one that is exported, represents one of our most valuable natural resources. This study undertakes a thorough review of the economics of the Appalachian coal industry. It establishes, first of all, the international framework within which the American and the Appalachian coal industry function. It next examines the underlying principles that govern the production of and the demand for coal. This demand is influenced not only by price but also by world politics, the economic well-being of dozens of countries, government regulation, and the availability of fuel substitutes. Included are a comprehensive treatment of the regulation of the industry, the effects of coal utilization on air quality, land reclamation, safety, transport, and legislation pertaining to port use. In conclusion, Harvey looks at the prospects for Appalachian coal, considering the impact of technologies such as fluidized bed combustion and coal-water slurry and the issue of energy policy and fuel alternatives. The picture that emerges is not unexpected―an industry whose recovery and enduring health depend on resurgence of world and domestic economic activity, social and political stability, and government regulation..

THE MOUNTAIN, THE MINER, & THE LORD

Item Description
Once more Harry M. Caudill has captured the essential human quality of life in the Kentucky mountains. This work does much to bridge gaps of misunderstanding between urban and Appalachian America. The toughness of the mountaineer, his humor, and his sorrows speak to the American reader through this book in a fashion that goes far to dispel hackneyed stereotypes. For the sheer joy of reading a fine book — and a very human one — this work needs to be on every American's bookshelf. Kenneth R.
