The world and its resources are finite, yet we are seemingly locked into a system based on growth: growth of population, growth of income and growth of consumption.
New Zealand professors Brenda and Robert Vale say the title of their book was partly tongue-in-cheek, partly shock tactic.
From this irrefutable starting point, "Time to Eat the Dog?" attempts to uncover what sustainability really means.
Brenda and Robert Vale explore the environmental impact of the decisions we make, from what we eat and what we wear to how we travel and enjoy ourselves.
Their book will make you see your life and your place in the world in a completely new light. Challenging the orthodoxies that underpin our entire economic system, this is one subversive read.
