Post-growth, de-growth and futures beyond GDP.
UK) Jackson Tim (University of Surrey£16.98
Tim Jackson's book really put the question of growth on the map for English readers when it was released in 2009, and it remains a persuasive and relevant book.
Edward Skidelsky and Robert Skidelsky£9.99 £9.29
Highly accesible exploration of enough by the father and son writing team, one a historian and one an economist.
David Pilling£9.99 £9.29
Written by a Financial Times journalist rather than a lefty eco-academic, and therefore well worth a look for those more sceptical.
Jeremy (writer and campaigner) Williams and Katherine (Wellbeing Economy Alliance) Trebeck£14.99 £13.94
My book with Katherine Trebeck, telling a new story about growth as a success story - and what societies do when the work of growth is done.
Kate Raworth£9.99 £9.29
Raworth describes herself as a 'growth agnostic' and this is broader than degrowth, but hits many of the same points with more flair and fun that almost any other book on economics.
Currently a government minister in Italy, and a rare example of bringing degrowth thinking into office. Particularly good on how GDP developed and how it maintains its power.
Samuel Alexander and Brendan Gleeson£22.99
Where most books deal with economic theory, this one takes degrowth into suburban sprawl and imagines how it could take root. Academic in style, but lives up to the 'radical' in the title.
There's a rich vein of degrowth thinking in France, and Serge Latouche is one of its central figures.
John Kenneth Galbraith£10.99 £10.22
The questions that degrowth wrestles with are nothing new. In 1956, Galbraith pondered what the priorities ought to be for rich countries, and this remains an inspiring read today.
E F Schumacher£9.99 £9.29
Schumacher's 1973 classic is a little dated in style, but his vision for a more local, human scale way of life is still influential and makes him a father of sustainable economics.
Giorgos Kallis, Susan Paulson, et al.£9.99
A pocket-sized summary of the arguments for degrowth, with authors based in the US and in Spain.
Guy Standing£9.99 £9.29
A central tenet of postgrowth thinking is the commons, and this is one of the best introductions to the topic.
Ehsan Masood£9.99 £9.29
