Named a Notable Book for 2005 by the American Library Association, One with Nineveh is a fresh synthesis of the major issues of our time, now brought up to date with an afterword for the paperback edition. Through lucid explanations, telling anecdotes, and incisive analysis, the book spotlights the three elephants in our global living room-rising consumption, still-growing world population, and unchecked political and economic inequity-that together are increasingly shaping today's politics and humankind's future. One with Nineveh brilliantly puts today's political and environmental debates in a larger context and offers some bold proposals for improving our future prospect.

A good overview of all the likely insurmountable problems facing humanity today, however latter part tries to offer strategies that are overly general, idealistic n frankly unrealistic - expected I suppose since there's prbly no easy fix anyway. Les hele vurderingen
