This outstanding collection of essays breaks new ground on urgent and important subjects. It does an admirable job of assessing the current state of consumption policy, and points the way forward in finding ways to reduce the environmental consequences of consumer culture. The breadth of the papers is particularly outstanding - the authors represent many countries, disciplines, and perspectives. The book is bursting with new ideas for thinking about consumption problems and policy in creative ways. It will be essential reading for all concerned with the future of the global environment.
