William L. Luttrell
An extraordinary exploration of the dangers, and possibilities, facing human communities today, Transforming Communities rejects the current myth that capitalism, led by global corporations, is providing the solutions we require to survive and prosper in the decades ahead. Quite a different path is offered to us by Mother Earth, Dr. Luttrell suggests, and it is the best hope for life on this planet, our own lives included. The book is an effort to outline the direction this path would take us, and the multifaceted transformation that it entails for our communities. It is also informed by the work of others, including environmentalists, social analysts, social biologists and anthropologists.
