            Since prehistory, bunkers have been built as protection from cataclysmic social and environmental forces, and as places of power and transformation. Today, the bunker has become the extreme expression of our greatest fears: from pandemics to climate change and nuclear war. And on...ce you look, it doesn't take long to start seeing bunkers everywhere. In Bunker, acclaimed urban explorer and cultural geographer Bradley Garrett explores the global and rapidly growing movement of 'prepping' for social and environmental collapse, or 'doomsday'. From the 'dread merchants' hustling safe spaces in the American mid-West to eco-fortresses in Thailand, from geoscrapers to armoured mobile bunkers, Bunker is a brilliant, original and never less than deeply disturbing story from the frontlines of the way we live now: an illuminating reflection on our age of disquiet and dread that brings it into new, sharp focus. The bunker, Garrett shows, is all around us: in malls, airports, gated communities, the vehicles we drive. Most of all, he shows, it's in our minds.

            We stand at a precipice - a point where the future is at stake. Humanity has come so far: ten thousand generations, each building on the work of their ancestors to reach the heights of culture and technology we see today. If we choose, we can continue this grand project, with eno...ugh time to end disease, poverty and injustice, and to fulfil our potential. But this future is at risk: for the first time, our power has grown so great that we have the ability to destroy ourselves. The Precipice is a clear-eyed look at the risks that we face, from the familiar, such as nuclear war and climate change, to the emerging, such as biotechnology and advanced artificial intelligence. It argues that ending these risks has become one of the most important moral issues of our time. What do we owe to the generations that follow us? This is an inspiring vision of human history, the legacy we will leave behind, and the steps we must take to work towards a brighter future.

            A Story from Lean Logic Surviving the Future is a story drawn from the fertile ground of the late David Fleming s extraordinary Lean Logic: A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive It.That hardback consists of four hundred and seventy-two interlinked dictionary entries, inv...iting readers to choose their own path through its radical vision. Recognizing that Lean Logic s sheer size and unusual structure can be daunting, Fleming s long-time collaborator Shaun Chamberlin has selected and edited one of these potential narratives to create Surviving the Future.The content, rare insights, and uniquely enjoyably writing style remain Fleming s, but are presented here at a more accessible paperback-length and in conventional read-it-front-to-back format. The subtitle Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy hints at Fleming s vision.He believed that the market economy will not survive its inherent flaws beyond the early decades of this century, and that its failure will bring great challenges, but he did not dwell on this: We know what we need to do.We need to build the sequel, to draw on inspiration which has lain dormant, like the seed beneath the snow. Surviving the Future lays out a compelling and powerfully different new economics for a post-growth world. One that relies not on taut competitiveness and eternally increasing productivity putting the grim into reality but on the play, humor, conversation, and reciprocal obligations of a rich culture.Building on a remarkable breadth of intellectual and cultural heritage from Keynes to Kumar, Homer to Huxley, Mumford to MacIntyre, Scruton to Shiva, Shakespeare to Schumacher Fleming describes a world in which, as he says, there will be time for music. This is the world that many of us want to live in, yet we are told it is idealistic and unrealistic.With an evident mastery of both economic theory and historical precedent, Fleming shows that it is not only desirable, but actually the only system
