Description

Provocative, passionate and populist, RMB Manifestos are short and concise non-fiction books of literary, critical, and cultural studies.

The developed world is increasingly obsessed with two things: electronic gadgets and our changing climate. We stand in open-mouthed awe of our technological achievements while dejectedly shrugging our shoulders at the state of the planet on which we live. Our choice is clear: we need to reimagine the way we engage with the technology we create if we hope to make the world a better place.

Peter Denton’s first RMB manifesto, Gift Ecology: Reimagining a Sustainable World, focused on interpersonal relationships as the foundation for a vibrant and ecologically sustainable society. In his second thought-provoking book in the series, the author challenges readers to think of our devices not merely as better rocks and sharper spears, but as profound extensions of our hearts and minds that we can use to make the world a more livable place through enlightened social media interaction, crowdfunding and other positive online engagements.
