It has been produced with an exceptional level of care and attention from Chelsea Green’s design team – who told Shaun they felt they were handling a classic. The book has a foreword from Jonathon Porritt, completed endnotes and (epic!) bibliography, full index, editor’s preface and several wood engravings selected or commissioned by David. Shaun has also edited a paperback version – Surviving the Future – in a more conventional read-it-front-to-back format, and at around a quarter of the length.
Last year Shaun lead authored a peer-reviewed academic paper on David’s TEQs (Tradable Energy Quotas) system, which was published in April. The Ecological Land Co-operative (which he chaired at the time) also raised over £300k in community finance and purchased a second piece of land, in Sussex, to make available their next set of eco-smallholdings: http://ecologicalland.coop/ . His article was published in STIR magazine introducing what the ELC is about: http://www.stirtoaction.com/article/the-law-of-the-land
