Student Branch

Includes Nova Southeastern University Student Branch (IEEE/ACM)

Monday September 11, 2006 6:30 PM


You are cordially invited to join Nova Southeastern University and the Broward chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers(IEEE) as they welcome Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award nominee Edwin Black for the worldwide launch of his new book, Internal Combustion.

The book, which has already received a red star rating from Publishers Weekly, forcefully details the rise of battery-powered electric automobiles a century ago, and how that effort was undermined and subverted in favor of the internal combustion engine and the oil cartel.

Black's address, entitled "How We Became Addicted to Oil and How to Break the Addiction Right Now," will offer insights the author has gained in researching the book, as well as timely solutions for the future. NSU's main campus is especially fitting for the international launch of Internal Combustion, as Black made extensive use of NSU's Alvin Sherman Library, Research and Information Technology Center in researching the book.
