The Shadows of Consumption


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

In The Shadows of Consumption, Peter Dauvergne tackles the often hidden consequences of globalization and consumption for the environment and for human health and well-being. He demonstrates how the worst of these consequences are displaced, often to the most marginalized sectors of global society, and discusses ways to cast light into the shadows of global economic development. This book will be essential reading for students and scholars, indeed anyone interested in understanding more about globalization and its impacts. -- Katherine M. O'Neill, College of Natural Resources, University of California, Berkeley The ecological and social consequences of modern patterns of consumption are often overlooked, underestimated, and poorly theorized. Engaging, convincing, and nuanced, Peter Dauvergne's book masterfully excavates and politicizes the shadows of consumption that modern life casts, from the consumption of beef to the use of cars and fridges. Wide-ranging and superbly written, this book is sure to be widely read. -- Peter Newell, Professor of Development Studies, University of East Anglia

About the Author

Peter Dauvergne is Professor of International Relations at the University of British Columbia. He is the author of Environmentalism of the Rich, Eco-Business- A Big-Brand Takeover of Sustainability (with Jane Lister), and The Shadows of Consumption- Consequences for the Global Environment, all published by the MIT Press.


Dauvergne's brilliant investigation will show you the 'other side' of the coin and that we must all incorporate a deeper awareness and take the 'long view' into our efforts to make a positive difference for human well-being near and far-immediately in your neighborhood and incrementally on the other side of the planet.

-Scott D. Wright, Human Ecology Review
