The first global revolution: a report by the Council of the Club of Rome

Alexander King | 1991 | ISBN: 0679738258 | English | 286 pages | DJVU | 6 MB

In 1972, the Club of Rome published The Limits to Growth, a book that aroused a worldwide controversy by highlighting the dangers posed by the relentless pursuit of material growth by the West. In The First Global Revolution, two members of the Council of the Club of Rome describe how material growth and over-consumption have now become a global problem. Environmental pollution, runaway population growth, food and energy shortages, and geopolitical upheavals make the future prospects of the world seem very bleak.

What we are witnessing today is the emergence of the postindustrial society, and the tumultuous charges around us are elements of this transitional phase. Poised or the brink of a social revolution ushered in by modern information technology, the world has two choices:

• to continue pursuing material goals and selfish aims, and thereby cause the slow but sure decline of all world systems:
• to unite and work towards building an improved life for future generations.

This book offers an overall perspective of the complex and interactive global problems, and discusses means of solving them comprehensively.
