9780061731358: Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World

For the first time, His Royal Highness Charles, the Prince of Wales, shares his views on how mankind’s most pressing modern challenges are rooted in our disharmony with nature. In the vein of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth and Van Jones’ Green Collar Economy, Prince Charles presents the compelling case that solutions to our most dire crises—from climate change to poverty—lie in regaining a balance with the world around us.

From the Back Cover:

HRH The Prince of Wales reveals how the solutions to our most pressing modern challenges, from climate change to poverty, can only be found in regaining a balance with nature.

For decades, The Prince of Wales has studied a wide array of disciplines in his quest to understand how modern industrialization has led us to a state of disharmony with the world around us and pushed us to the very brink of disaster. Now, Prince Charles shows how we can effectively combat such global crises as climate change and poverty by not only relying upon technology but also by changing the way we view the modern world.

With its holistic approach, this provocative and well-reasoned book takes the discussion of sustainability and climate change in a new direction, incorporating the traditional wisdom of our past with the modern science of our present to create a new vision for our world. Illustrated with vivid photographs and charts, this intelligent, practical, and illuminating guide is not only a call to arms in defense of our future but also a powerful weapon in the battle to save our planet.

About the Author:

The Prince of Wales has used his unique position to make a difference throughout the world, establishing numerous charities and public interests, and organizing The Prince's Rainforests Project to combat deforestation and global warming.
