NetLibrary's October eBook of the Month

The NetLibrary electronic book (eBook) service we subscribe to makes a specific title available each month to all subscribers. So even though we may not have purchased that title, it will be freely available for the month in which it is the "book of the month." The October eBook is Capitalism as if the World Matters (revised edition) by Jonathon Porritt, with a new foreword by Amory B. Lovins. The book is published by Earthscan.* The NetLibrary advertisement describes the book as follows:

When first published in 2005, Capitalism as if the World Matters shocked both a generation of environmentalists and a generation of business people by brushing aside their petty squabbles and artificial battle lines with a powerful argument—that the only way to save the world from fuel shortages, climate change and environmental catastrophe is to embrace a new type of capitalism, and to do it quickly.

In this substantially revised and updated edition with a new foreword by Amory B. Lovins, Jonathon Porritt—Prime Minister Tony Blair’s chief environmental advisor—tackles the most pressing problems of our time and extends his powerful and controversial argument by suggesting new actions in a tightly argued and highly accessible book. New material includes in-depth coverage of the United States and the politics of climate change, the state of environmental debate and the massive upsurge in religious engagement with climate and the environment.
