Abstract

The Approaching Great Transformation is Joel Magnuson‘s take on how communities around the world are shifting away from consumer culture and reliance on fossil fuels and moving towards ethical projects and ultimately towards hope. The early chapters of the book rehearse key arguments and evidence for climate change – taking in the crisis of peak oil and the threat of depleting water supplies – before leading us through an eclectic tour of the writings of 20th century social theorists and economists whose work Magnuson sees as laying the ground for small scale, community based forms of social organization and social enterprise. Reviewed by Jamie Cross.
