First published in 1976, this book presupposes a future in which man will be increasingly confronted by a series of global disorders. By focusing attention on these, this book attempts to identify those forces which threaten not only the quality of life but the very survival of the human species. Dr Camilleri brings a multidisciplinary approach to the study of the cultural and institutional imbalances which underlie the organization of national and international society. He examines the economic philosophy of the advanced industrial countries and the fierce rivalries to which it has given rise within the western world as well as the inequality it has encouraged and perpetuated between overdeveloped and underdeveloped societies, and the consequences of this for the world's energy economy and ecological system. The author then advances some normative concepts and ethical options as sign posts towards an alternative future society.
