Description

From The Simpsons to Cyberjaya, the multimedia supercorridor of Malaysia; from Pepsi's failed breakfast beverages to a climate crisis seen through scuba goggles; from dotcom bubbles to the Great Bear Rainforest, the essays of Chris Turner's Breathing Underwater exhort us to meet the challenges of sustainability - ecological, economic, and cultural - with innovation instead of lamentation.
