In American Energy, Imperiled Coast, published by the LSU Press, Jason P. Theriot explores the tension between oil and gas development and the land-loss crisis in Louisiana. His book offers an analysis of both the impressive, yet ecologically destructive, engineering feats that characterized industrial growth in the region and the mounting environmental problems that threaten south Louisiana’s communities, culture, and “working” coast. 

A former Energy Policy Fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, Theriot earned a doctorate in history from the University of Houston and a degree in journalism from Louisiana State University. His website is
