Sorry, this product is not currently available to order

Description

Writers such as Samuel P. Huntington and Robert D. Kaplan, respectively, have spoken of an emerging "clash of civilizations" and of "coming anarchy". This work is also concerned with the future of civilization, in particular with the conflict between economic growth and the sustainability of biophysical lifesupport systems of the planet, arguing that the system of orthodox neo-classical economics has justified the modernist belief in the necessity of ending economic growth and the exploitation of nature.
