Author: Serge Latouche
Publisher: Cambridge ; Malden, MA : Polity, ©2009.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Most of us who live in the North and the West consume far too much - too much meat, too much fat, too much sugar, too much salt. We are more likely to put on too much weight than to go hungry. We live in a society that is heading for a crash. We are aware of what is happening and yet we refuse to take it fully into account.
