Product description

From the Back Cover

"With impressive historical and economic detail ranging from the industrial Revolution to modern imperialism, The Vulnerable Planet explores the reasons why a global economic system geared toward private profit has spelled vulnerability for the earth's fragile natural environment."--BOOK JACKET. "Rejecting both individualistic solutions and policies that tinker at the margins, John Bellamy Foster calls for a fundamental reorganization of production on a social basis so as to make possible a sustainable and ecological economy."--BOOK JACKET. "This revised edition includes a new afterword by the author."--BOOK JACKET.

He is professor of sociology at the University of Oregon and author of The Ecological Revolution, The Great Financial Crisis (with Fred Magdoff), Critique of Intelligent Design (with Brett Clark and Richard York), Ecology Against Capitalism, Marx's Ecology, and The Vulnerable Planet.
