Vital Signs : Psychological Responses to Ecological Crisis Paperback / softback
Edited by Mary-Jayne Rust, Nick Totton
This anthology illustrates the range and diversity of responses from the psychological world to the multiple ecological crises with which our society is faced. "Vital signs" are the basic physiological measures of functioning which health practitioners use to assess how ill a patient is.
This book focuses not on our physical predicament, with so many of the earth's systems severely stressed and beginning to fail, but on our psychological predicament.
As news of this very serious situation slowly penetrates our defences, we struggle as individuals and as a society to find an adequate response.
