      Indonesia. Indonesia is a semi-annual journal devoted to the timely study of Indonesia’s culture, history, government, economy, and society. It features original scholarly articles, interviews, translations, and book reviews.   Not only is the idea of overpopulation as the cause of the environmental crisis oversimplified and inaccurate, it upholds a de-generative paradigm of scarcity, fear and competition that goes against the core teachings of permaculture. It also perpetuates problematic thinking that leads to ineffective and unjust public policies and global solutions.

        "Human societies live ― and die ― by cultural myths including the catastrophic modern myth of perpetual economic growth. With their update of the Ecological Footprint, Wackernagel and Beyers wield the most effective myth-busting tool available. Failure to read this book should disqualify any would-be elected official from running for office."Reviews: ecological agriculture, industrial fisheries, as well as environmental education and recreation.

      A potent new book examines the overlap between our ecological crisis and video games Arguing that video games need to be understood as part of a cultural response to the growing ecological crisis, Playing Nature seeds conversations around key environmental science concepts and terms.   "This book takes us beyond—though not around—the grief and despair that the ecological crisis evokes. Herein lies an authentic possibility of healing through a transformation in our own ways of knowing, relating, and being. CHARLES EISENSTEIN, author Sacred Economics and The Ascent of Humanity,
