The Inheritance

Out of stock - dispatches within 5-7 business days

A provocative call-to-arms to economic leaders to change course and better protect our planet and its people, presented in words and pictures by the multi-award-winning creator of The Island and The Mediterranean"All this will soon be yours, respect what I have built and make it prosper." These are the last words of the old industrialist before dying. While the three brothers discuss how to fulfill their father's wishes, the sister lists for them the disastrous consequences would follow: disease; marine pollution; deforestation; the destruction of the landscape; pollution of skies and rivers . . . The Inheritance tells of the greed and blindness of those who hold economic power, and reminds us that silence and indifference amount to complicity. With minimal text, this powerful story is told primarily through Armin Greder's distinctive illustrations that challenge the reader to question the status quo and fight for the future.
