Howard T. Odum is considered one of the founding fathers of modern ecology as well as its deepest thinker. Environment, Power, and Society for the Twenty-first Century is a major modernization of his classic work, bringing it to a whole new generation of students and scholars. Environment, Power, and Society for the Twenty-first Centuryfocuses on the significance of energy and its role in society. For this edition Odum refines his original theories and introduces two new quantities: emergy and transformity. These concepts evaluate and compare energy resources and their transformations by calculating all the energy and material that flows in and out of a particular system. Natural energies such as solar radiation, the cycling of water, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen are diagrammed in terms of energy and emergy flow. Through this method Odum reveals the similarities between human economic and social systems and the way in which our survival and prosperity are regulated as much by the laws of energetics as by those of the physical and chemical world.

Howard T. Odum was Graduate Research Professor at the University of Florida's Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences from 1970 until his death in 2002. He won the Crafoord Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Prix de l'Institut de la Vie awarded by the French government. He is the author of numerous books and papers, including Ecological and General Systems: An Introduction to Systems Ecology, Environmental Accounting: Emergy and Decision Making, and, with Elisabeth C. Odum, Modeling for all Scales: An Introduction to System Simulationand The Prosperous Way Down: Principles and Policies.
