Scarcity is a book about humanity's "predicament" Our persistent utilization of enormous and continuously increasing quantities of finite, non-replenishing, and increasingly scarce nonrenewable natural resources (NNRs) - i.e., the fossil fuels, metals, and nonmetallic minerals that enable our modern industrialized way of life, and that are essential to perpetuating our modern industrialized way of life - is undermining our very existence as a species. Scarcity explores the causes, implications, and imminent consequences associated with humanity's predicament.

The Gulf Arab states became rich by accident. Their golden ticket was oil, which has become the lifeblood of their social and economic systems. But they are prone to become a ‘vanishing Eden’, if the oil curse endures further and economic transformation remains a mirage. LIFE AFTER OIL highlights the economic vulnerability of the Gulf states after the oil party ends. The region depends heavily on imports financed by petrodollars. So, when demand for oil sinks and prices plummet, or when oil and gas reserves ultimately vanish, their survival will be extremely challenged. LIFE AFTER OIL raises the alarm to the impending survival challenges to face the burgeoning Gulf societies in the post-oil era, and tackles the ultimate question: what will the future look like?

The central theme of this book is the family as an environment for child development. The diversity of research topics, from evolutionary biology to the urban environment, serves to emphasize the importance of the family as the filter which process energy and information from the greater environment into a form that can be utilized by the developing child. The family is the source of biocultural reproduction. The family reproduces both people (the biological) and reproduces the technology, the social organization, and the ideology of a society in those new people (the cultural). This book has four major themes: 1) the place of the family in nature and human society, 2) the family in historical perspective, including differences between various cultural groups, 3) the family as an environment for human growth, development and education, and 4) the family in transition in the contemporary world. These themes are the subject of 12 chapters, and a preface, written by an international array of scholars. The wide diversity of subject matter described in these chapters will make this book of interest to anthropologists, economists, historians, medical professionals (e.g., nurses and some physicians), philosophers, political scientists (and some politicians), psychologists, sociologists, and theologians.
