Summary
"Consider this paradox: Ecologists estimate that it would take three planets Earth to provide an American standard of living to the entire world. Yet it is that standard of living to which the whole world aspires." "In Consuming Desires, Roger Rosenblatt brings together a collection of writers to shed light on that disturbing paradox. The book presents a rich and varied dialogue on the underlying roots of consumer culture and its pervasive impact on ourselves and the world around us."--Jacket
