Product description

Review

'Much of the pleasure of reading this book derives from [Papanek's] vivid imagery and the directness with which he expresses his very strong views' - Design 'Highly readable and informative ... has become somewhat of a seminal work for those following the patterns of aid and trade and technological development today' - Financial Times 'Wonderfully alive, and full of examples to instruct, amuse and horrify' - New Scientist

About the Author
