Of Dr. Yergin's subsequent book, Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy, the Wall Street Journal said: ?No one could ask for a better account of the world's political and economic destiny since World War II.? This book has been translated into 13 languages and Dr. Yergin led the team that turned it into a six-hour PBS/BBC documentary - the major PBS television series on globalization. The series received three Emmy nominations, a CINE Golden Eagle Award and the New York Festival's Gold World Medal for best documentary. Dr. Yergin's other books include Shattered Peace, an award-winning history of the origins of the Cold War, Russia 2010 and What It Means for the World (with Thane Gustafson), and Energy Future: The Report of the Energy Project at the Harvard Business School, which he edited with Robert Stobaugh.
