This book contains a 142 page history of goals and achievements of the United States Department of Energy (DOE) from its formation in 1977 to 1993. Formed as a result of the energy crisis in the mid 1970s, the DOE combined various civilian energy policies with nuclear weapons programs. The history covers the DOE's operations in from the U.S. President Jimmy Carter administration through that of President Bill Clinton. During this interesting period, the department programs responded to the energy crisis, the Cold War arms race, and the end of the Cold War. The DOE programs built and dismantled nuclear weapons, damaged and reclaimed the environment, and explored new sources of energy. Available for download as a file in PDF format, the document also contains a chronology of events, extensive footnotes, and several appendices containing more detailed information on personnel, budgets, and organization.
