The Upside of Down
(Toronto), Knopf Canada, (2006). Subtitled "Catastrophe, Creativity, and the Renewal of Civilization," this title falls squarely into 21st century nature writing, after all the alarms sounded in the latter decades of the 20th century went unheeded. Homer-Dixon examines the connections between global warming, energy scarcity, and economic imbalances and attempts to find hope in the resilience of human and natural systems. Signed by the author, who won the Governor General's Award for The Ingenuity Gap. Fine in a fine dust jacket. [#034736] $50
