About this book

Describes in a non-technical way two alternate visions of the future, in the quest for a sustainable future for global society. Path A results from a continuation of current trends, and a contrasting Path B would result from adhering to principles of sustainability and protection of the natural system in the interests of future generations. The book identifies the many small and large steps that should be taken, to which we can all contribute.
`...for the audience of aware, concerned people, futurists, environmentalists, business people, journalists, academics, this book will be considered a classic. It will be considered a `must-read'.' Professor Donella Meadows, Environmental Studies Programme, Dartmouth College, UK

Professor Donella Meadows, Environmental Studies Programme, Dartmouth College 'This is well-argued case for a change in thinking about the way we organise our society, based on a sound understanding of how the complex environmental, economic, and social systems work and interact with each other.
