About this book

This book is a current comprehensive and holistic assessment of the social and environmental challenges facing a developing African State within a global context.

What then has happened to urban people? Why do we pollute? Why are we so complacent about the rape of the earth, the collapse of soils, the plundering of the seas?...Have we lost touch with the reality of what lies beyond the urban edge - the fields upon which we are so utterly dependent? Coming Back to Earth, 2002.
