Abstract

How do we change from unsustainable lifestyles to more ethically responsible ones? In Bird on Fire, Andrew Ross charts the lessons we must all learn from the world’s least sustainable city, and stresses a strong social message: that sustainability cannot be achieved without addressing the problems of and learning from the grassroots – from indigenous populations – even, and this would generate ripples of shock among Republican senators, from minority and ethnic immigrants. Reviewed by Ayona Datta. Bird on Fire: Lessons from the World’s Least Sustainable City.Andrew Ross. OUP USA. November 2011.
