Author(s):Coward, Harold
Publisher Name:State University of New York Press
Place of Publication:Albany, N.Y.
Date of Publication:1995
Annotation:Aiming to remedy a perceived lack of attention to religion in debates about consumption and population, the editor of this collection of essays argues that the world’s religions serve as powerful forces in guiding human behavior and that their cooperation in successfully addressing global problems is essential. After providing a “baseline” of current social and environmental conditions on a global scale, contributors offer perspectives from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Chinese, and Aboriginal religions. Various secular topics, such as North-South relations, the market, international law, family planning, the status of women, poverty, and consumption are then discussed. The volume concludes with a delineation of specific policy proposals.
