Hallowes, David.

U. of KwaZulu-Natal Press

This interesting and timely work on current and coming international economic and environmental crises explores the role of South Africa in the wider global network of developing nations and examines the ways in which forward thinking activists might wrestle control of economic and energy policies from the traditional elites. The work focuses on several areas of energy and resource production in the country, pointing out the failures of existing modes of production and discussing new methodologies for averting climate and economic crisis. Hallowes is an independent researcher on environmental and social justice issues. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
