ABOUT THE BOOK

Professor Doctor and Writer João Pedro Galhano Alves lived in some of the rare regions of the Planet, in three continents, where human societies still coexist with ecosystems in state of total or high biodiversity. The comparation of these societies with the techno-industrial societies, in state of minimal biodiversity, lead him to formulate the analysis and concepts contained in this book.He shows the social and ecologic advantages of the traditional communitarian systems for the use of land and natural resources. He describes the geopolitical ways that conducted to their almost total elimination, and he analyses the effects, how humans evolved, to reach their present deplorable condition, of mass dependency, production and consumption. This study shows that the present global ecologic and socioeconomic crises need a change in the social systems of use and management of the territories and natural resources.
