This book challenges conventional concepts of development and Modernization and surveys their contribution to "global dysfunction"-entrenched poverty, environmental degradation and socio-political unrest. Gotlieb argues for a social ecology based on quality of life and community, environmental sustainability, and "needs-based" rather than growth-oriented economic systems. Communities must find their own paths to environmentally sustainable recovery from local manifestations of global dysfunction.
