Reviews

"Kate O'Neill's latest work takes us on an eye-popping journey through rich case studies of wastes and their movement around the planet."
Josh Lepawsky, Memorial University of Newfoundland

"A marvelously crafted and grippingly written book about one of the most pressing challenges facing our planet. The sooner you read it, the more you will learn about the ways in which we systematically fail to use so much of what we extract and how governments, businesses, and individuals can turn to this expanding 'global resource frontier' to reduce our impact."
Ben Cashore, Yale University

"In this important book, Kate O'Neill expertly traces the complex international trade flows behind the prodigious volumes of waste generated by global consumer society. A valuable and illuminating contribution to current debates about if and how we make the shift to more sustainable lifestyles."
Maurie Cohen, New Jersey Institute of Technology
