Description

Long before the phrase 'climate change' was a universal catchphrase, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales was studying the impact of industrialization on the environment. Now, in this fascinating cross-disciplinary work, the Prince of Wales calls upon his years of research and explores the way in which mankind must work to restore the delicate balance with nature that we've lost in the centuries since the industrial revolution began.

In Harmony, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales draws upon a variety of elements from our modern world, and discusses how areas as diverse as architecture, farming, and medicine have each abandoned the classical balances with nature that existed in pre-industrial times. From the rice farms of India to America's corn belt, Harmony spans the globe, dissecting the specific practices of modern life that have put us at odds with nature and showing how these trends manifest themselves throughout the world.

Contrasting current styles of architecture with traditional design, and modern medicine techniques against those of the past, he paints a clear portrait of what we as a species have lost in the modern age. More than simply another treatise on global warming, Harmony tells a story that presents a clear, thoughtful look at how our disassociation from nature has led to the greatest environmental crisis in the history of mankind.

Intelligent, practical and uplifting.

Incredibly well researched and grand in it's scope. After the first couple of hours I was getting so depressed about the state of the world that I wondered if I could take another nine hours. Fortunately,once he defines the problems he leads you through a fascinating tour of world history, philosophy, art and science. After establishing where humanity took a wrong turn he presents a practical new path for us to take. A road map for everything from climate change, agricultural practices, education and economics is laid out. As he states in the book, if you don't agree with his solutions, come up with better ones because "business as usual" is no longer an option. Contrary to his image in the media, Prince Charles is a true modern day philosopher full of compassion, insight and wisdom. He should be given his place as King of England and we could do worse than to have him as king of the world. Everyone should read this book.
