Grow Small, Think Beautiful: Ideas for a Sustainable World from Schumacher College edited by Stephan Harding
Schumacher College, based near Totnes in Devon, England, opened its doors in the early 1990s and is now an internationally renowned center for transformative learning on all aspects of sustainable living.
