The Death of Industrial Civilization explains how the contemporary ecological crisis within industrial society is caused by the values inherent in unlimited economic growth and competitive materialism. Kassiola shows that the limits-to-growth critique of industrial civilization is the most effective stance against what seems to be a dominant and invincible social order. He prescribes the social changes that must be implemented in order to transform industrial society into a sustainable and more satisfying one.

Review quote

"Kassiola swims against the stream of modern thought, not only challenging its current course, but pointing in new directions and urging others to join the rethinking process." -- Lester W. Milbrath "It fills a void in the literature on the future of industrial growth by synthesizing a tremendous amount of material into a coherent package. ...a first-rate book of intellectual brilliance." -- Dennis Pirages
