of the Labyrinth: Who We Are, How We Go Wrong and What We Can Do
Combines a personal narrative, visionary framework, and cultural criticism into a story about where we have gone wrong as a culture and what we must do (and become) to set things right again. Explains the author: "We live in a fragmented world, and we do so as fragmented individuals. Many of us, perhaps all of us, long to tie things together, to make things somehow cohere. Writing this book – wrestling with the material in its pages – did that for me. My hope is that it can do the same for you." More...

| Outgrowing The Earth. By Lester Brown. Falling water tables in countries that contain more than half the world's people and rising temperatures worldwide are the leading threats to global security. Water shortages and crop-withering heat waves are shrinking grain harvests, making it difficult for the world's farmers to feed 70 million more people each year. Tightening food supplies could drive up food prices, destabilizing governments in low-income grain-importing countries and disrupting global economic progress. Future security depends on raising water productivity and stabilizing climate and population. More…
