Summary
"In direct language, Unsustainable explains the double bind in which humanity now finds itself - an environmental crisis that is escalating year on year, and a human and social crisis of poverty and inequality that is growing increasingly worse. Aimed at a concerned, popular audience, including both budding social activists and young people studying the environment and international development, the book demonstrates how these twin crises share the same historical roots." "Brilliantly combining a huge amount of up-to-date information, visuals, and clear explanation, Patrick Hossay shows step by step how a particular historical path of colonialism, capitalist development and industrial growth has brought us to this state."--Jacket
