Hi all,

I've just submitted for proofing "The End of Growth: Adapting To Our New
Economic Reality" by Richard Heinberg.

It's been read through w/errors corrected, headers stripped, page
numbers/section titles present, text/headings/footnotes formatted. There are
also text boxes/sidebars which I've also labeled. 322 pages.

Economists insist that recovery is at hand, yet unemployment remains high,
real estate values continue to sink, and governments stagger under record
deficits. The End of Growthproposes a startling diagnosis: humanity has
reached a fundamental turning point in its economic history.  The
expansionary trajectory of industrial civilization is colliding with
non-negotiable natural limits.  Richard Heinberg's latest landmark work goes
to the heart of the ongoing financial crisis, explaining how and why it
occurred, and what we must do to avert the worst potential outcomes.
Written in an engaging, highly readable style, it shows why growth is being
blocked by three factors:  Resource depletion Environmental impacts Crushing
levels of debt  These converging limits will force us to re-evaluate
cherished economic theories and to reinvent money and commerce.  The End of
Growth describes what policy makers, communities, and families can do to
build a new economy that operates within Earth's budget of energy and
resources.  We can thrive during the transition if we set goals that promote
human and environmental well-being, rather than continuing to pursue the
now-unattainable prize of ever-expanding GDP.  Richard Heinberg is the
author of nine previous books, includingThe Party's Over,Peak Everything,
andBlackout.  A senior fellow of the Post Carbon Institute, Heinberg is one
of the world's foremost peak oil educators and an effective communicator of
the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels.
