Inhaltsangabe: The roots of our time?s troubles are ecological, deeper than current economic manifestations. Anguished posterity will call this 21st century ?the bottleneck century.?
Occupationally specialized people today are necessarily dependent upon an intricate web of exchange relations. Ultimately selfdestructive, that web fosters myopic preoccupations, making us mutually predatory. Even when functioning normally?and not in a collapsed condition, as currently?this system of relations is pervasively dehumanizing. It tempts even the wisest and most civicminded to favor ?remedial? policies that can worsen the real predicament.
A basic trio of disturbing trends?humans having become so numerous, so ravenous, and so shortsighted?has made the nature of today?s human prospect far more dire than most policymakers dare acknowledge.
Recognition of, and adequate adaptation to, the deteriorating biogeochemical foundations of human life have been impeded, so human societies (even our own) are almost certainly going to act in ways that will make an inevitably difficult future unnecessarily worse.

Über den Autor: William R. Catton, Jr., Professor Emeritus, Sociology, Washington State University, has also taught and done research in Canada, New Zealand, and elsewhere in the U.S. After World War II U.S. Navy service, he majored in history at Oberlin College and earned his the University of Washington. Research on wild land resource use and management led to his later focus upon principles of ecology. Bottleneck is a sequel to his 1980 book, Overshoot: The Ecological Basis of Revolutionary Change. He has written more than a hundred journal articles and contributed book chapters, plus several dozen book reviews.
