Front Cover

The contributors to this volume focus on the political and value issues that, in their shared view, underlie the global environmental crisis facing us today. They argue that only by transforming our dominant values, social institutions, and "modern" way of living will we be able to avoid ultimate ecological disaster. Their call for the recognition of limits is, paradoxically, revolutionary in the context of postmodern society, but the contributors do not consider their views naive or utopian
