An unfortunate but apparently unavoidable adjunct to the growth and development of an industry is the proliferation of technical terms and abbreviations that go along with it. The energy and transportation industries are perfect examples of this particular disease, with a language developing in each case which is inclined to intimidate the uninitiated. The handbook has been written with all those in mind who struggle to remember abbreviations and who require instant enlightenment on technical works and phrases. Obviously the main emphasis is on that branch of the energy industry loosely called "oil economics", but there is plenty here for the transportation specialist as well. The "dictionary of terms" in fact takes up only some 80 pages of this 180 page book. The remainder consists of tables analysing world energy production and consumption. Such items as refinery capacity and the main tanker trades do receive attention as well.
