“Over Development Over Population Over Shoot” edited by Tom Butler is one fantastic, but terrifying book.
But first a word on the physical book itself. The book weighs in at 6.8 pounds. It is 13.5 inches by 12.5 inches by 1.3 inches. It has 330 pages. There are less than 10 pages full of text. Nearly ever page is an edge to edge image of unimaginable excellence. The book is printed and distributed by
Goff Books. It is copyrighted by The Foundation for Deep Ecology. Both The Population Media Center and The Population Institute have their name on the cover. In the world of beautiful books, this is a very, very beautiful book. It was printed in China on paper from “sustainability managed forests.” Amazon sells it for under $40. Most art books of this quality go for well over $100.
The introduction, by Musimbi Kanyono and the Afterword by Eileen Crist are wonderful essays on the dangers of continuing on our path of overpopulating the Earth to unsustainable levels, both for us and for the rest of the ecological net that we are destroying. Their cry is for us to decrease our human population to less than 2 billion by birth control through, not coercion, but education of everyone, but especially the women and girls. Much is made of the patriarchal, military, fundamentalists, capitalistic, self centered ways of modern man driving the destructive forces.
The Parable of “Lord Man” has two endings. It begins with the lush Earth, continues with the onset of man living in accord with the Old Religions that taught of living with the Earth as a member of the society of animals, plants, soils and rocks. Then the parable has two endings.Read more ›
This may be the single most important book published since the 21st century began. Not kidding. This book is about reality, and it's not about anything else, much.

GREAT book. It tells its story in graphic, horrific detail, which is just what is needed to explain the situation of human overpopulation and what an invasive species we are.Published 7 months ago by Stephanie C. Fox
