Can we change the world in the kitchen?: Review

In this review of the book Depletion and Abundance by Sharon Astyk, Dennis Lum outlines Asytk's suggestions for adjustment to a post-peak-oil future by means of re-valuing the informal economy, particularly those parts of it that are traditionally seen as women's work, together with locally-based industry and the cultivation of plants. He concludes that it is "a wise and thoughtful book filled with optimism and passion for a future that is anchored in realism if only we would embrace it".
