A Safe and Sustainable World
By Nancy Jack Todd. This well-researched and readable book is a first-hand account of the efforts of the New Alchemy Institute?a nonprofit organization formed in the late sixties to address the basic human needs of food, shelter and energy. Detailing the Institute's design and construction of two large, independent bioshelters-cum-research facilities, this book is full of practical ideas as well as lofty principles. A great text for the sustainability movement and an inspiring story. 232 pages, hardcover.
