From Library Journal:

The concept of a sustainable society is explored in this revised and updated reissue of The Future as If It Really Mattered (Bookmakers Guild, 1988. o.p.). Such a society would support a way of life that meets the basic conditions of historical scope, social coherence, and moral legitimacy. For this, families and children provide the bedrock and the motivation. Garbarino's ideas for making the transition to social welfare systems based on innovative economics and environmental concerns are creative and interesting. One chapter explores the feminine voice and how it offers alternatives to traditional masculine forms that have dominated public life; for example, a new basic economic unit would be the familial household, with accounting for true costs and wealth not measured by the current gross national product. Some sources and statistics seem dated, but this is still an optimistic book for the general educated reader looking for solutions in a world of accelerated change. For public and academic libraries.
