About this book

Revised edition of the collection that argues that the current debate on environment and development is dominated by Western notions of progress. Such assumptions are here tackled head on, arguing that the imposition around the world of a single industrial monoculture will inevitably lead to increasing social and environmental breakdown. Only by respecting cultural and biological diversity can we move towards truly sustainable and equitable patterns of living. Contributors include: Edward Goldsmith, Martin Khor, Vandana Shiva, and Gary Snyder.
