  1. Abandon Affluence
    Resource Type: Book
    This work reviews the most recent evidence on major global problems, examining resource and energy scarcity, environmental destruction, Third World underdevelopment, international conflict, and the deteriorating quality of life.

Only fundamental social change, not technical solutions, can provide the solution.

    Evaluating a Participatory Learning Process
