Meg Jacobs and Energy Crises

How did the U.S. meet the energy crises of the 1970s? How did the crises impact energy policy? How did U.S. energy policy result in the Gulf War and what role does fracking play in current energy policy?

For the 16th episode of Campaign Context, Professor Meg Jacobs (Princeton University) talks about the energy crises of the 1970s, oil, and energy policy. Jacobs’ most recent book is Panic at the Pump: The Energy Crisis and the Transformation of American Politics in the 1970s. Her work  centers on the intersection of economics and politics in modern United States. She is the author of Pocketbook Politics: Economic Citizenship in Twentieth-Century America, and co-author, with Julian Zelizer, of Conservatives in Power: The Reagan Years, 1981-1989.
