Fred Luks: State of Emergency, Our Presence from A to Z, Metropolis Publisher 2018, 386 Pages, EUR 28,80

Fred Luks, head of the Competence Center for Sustainability at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, delivers a sober view of the present in his most recent work - packaged as "World Rescue ABC" from A as in state of emergency through D as digitization to Z as future pictures. "We are experiencing incredible escalation processes of social, economic, political and - completely underestimated - ecological nature," said Luks, who sees his task as an author above all in making these processes visible and understandable. An insightful read.
