World Made By Hand

World Made by Hand - James Howard Kunstler

This is a well-written dramatization of what the post-Peak-Oil-scenario world will be like according to James Howard Kunstler, the leading media crusader on this topic. It's set maybe a decade after western civilization began collapsing due to gas shortages, in a small town in upstate New York. Events force the residents to give up waiting for technological good times to come back, and start living again in a new world with new rules.
