The Death of Industrial Civilization: The Limits to Economic Growth and the Repoliticization of Advanced Industrial Society

前表紙
SUNY Press, 1990/01/01 - 297 ページ
The Death of Industrial Civilization explains how the contemporary ecological crisis within industrial society is caused by the values inherent in unlimited economic growth and competitive materialism. Kassiola shows that the limits-to-growth critique of industrial civilization is the most effective stance against what seems to be a dominant and invincible social order. He prescribes the social changes that must be implemented in order to transform industrial society into a sustainable and more satisfying one.
