In collaboration with AST-Press, Institute of World ideas published the forth book in an "Ideas for World" book series - "World on the Edge" by Lester Brown. Lester Brown is one of the most wel-known ecologists in the World as well as analyst of global problems. Brown eveluates local and global consequences of local water shortages, soil erosion, climate change, and other trends that are constricting our global food supply. Brown expects “perfect storm” or "endless recession" of factors threatens our civilization with political and economic chaos.
We hope that publication of "World on the edge" in Russian will give broaden perspective for people interested in ecology and global problematique, as well as contribute to futher discussions of nation strategies adressing local and global problems.
