from back cover:

As energy and food prices escalate and debt levels explode, paths that formerly led to economic prosperity now lead to disaster. This book proposes a startling diagnosis: the global economy has reached a fundamental turning point-the end of growth. The Great Recession will not end in "recovery". Still, we can thrive in coming years if we abandon the futile pursuit of growth in consumption and aim instead for improvements in quality of life.
Richard Heinberg's latest landmark work goes to the heart of the ongoing financial crisis, examining why it occurred, and what we must do to avert the worst potential outcomes. Written in an engaging style, it shows why growth can't continue in the face of resource depletion, environmental devastation, and mountain of debt.
THE END OF GROWTH re-evaluates cherished economic theories and describes what policy-makers, communities, and families can do to build a new economy that operates within Earth's budget of energy and resources. We can thrive during the transition if we set goals that promote human and environmental well-being, rather than pursuing the now-unattainable prize of ever-expanding GDP.

(Richard Heinberg is the author of nine previous books...A Senior Fellow of Post Carbon Institute, he is one of the world's foremost Peak Oil educators and an effective communicator of the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels)
