No signatures. Dust-jacket protected in archival mylar cover.; "Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely, sacrilegious though they may sound. As nor practised, democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead." - page 81. "The traditional concept of nation is partly disappearing in the wave of internationalization." - page 91. "We previously mentioned in our recommendations a number of more specific subjects that need to be brought to the attention of the public through educational programmes, such as environmental protection, energy saging, the role of science and technology, the interdependence of countries in the North and South [. . .]" - page 172. "In the 1970s, the Club of Rome launched the book "The Limits to Growth". Essential reading for all those concerned about the future of the planet, the book was translated into 37 languages. Now "The First Global Revolution" reviews global problems 20 years on, offering both a warning and an approach to a possible solution to world problems. Topics covered by this book include the need for the world to convert from a military to a civil economy, the containment of global warming and the recognition of the disastrous short-term effects of exploitation by First World countries of Third World poverty and need."
