Wasting Away

by Kevin Lynch
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lynch presents an overview of waste processes in the natural world and in human cultures of many eras and lands, discussing military waste, arson, wrecking, scavenging, and reuse. Drawing on historical examples, he shows how one person's waste may be another's resource, and he defines his own philosophy on the subject as "positive wasting", making the best of an inevitable process.
