Alternatives to Growth - I: A Search for Sustainable Futures

Edited by Dennis L. Meadows

Ballinger, 1978, 401 pp.

The propagators of The Limits to Growth should be applauded for trying to work out ways for society to live in a stable state. The discussions in this collection range from global food and energy systems to backyard microfarms. There is good material on decentralization, fairly standard stuff on planning, and some interesting efforts to deal with equity and the market.
