For every person in the Third World, two thousand square metres of rainforest are destroyed each year. Our habits, and our numbers, are wrecking the planet." "In his most challenging book to date, Paul Harrison, author of the classic bestseller, Inside the Third World, shows how population growth, rising consumption and damaging technologies combined to trigger the biggest environmental crisis in human history." "Crisis spurred the agricultural and industrial revolutions. It may now speed the third revolution--the transition to sustainable development. The race is on between our power to damage, and our power to achieve balance with the environment." "Can we act before circumstances force our hand? Hamlet had less than half an hour to live when he finally killed Claudius. Can we break the Hamlet syndrome? In a blend of authoritative analysis and powerful reporting from the world's most vulnerable places, Harrison shows what is wrong and why, and what we can do about it."--Jacket." ;
