Review

His final book published in 1977 shortly before his death was presented by Schumacher as being the summation of his life's work. It amounts to a statement of the philosophical basis for 'Small is Beautiful', and is also a condemnation of materialistic scientism - with many similarities to Theodore Rosak's 1973 'Where the Wasteland Ends'

As a philosophical work this was not directly influential on the development of the green movement in the UK, but is a valuable account of the type of thinking and ideas that were widely shared across the green culture.
