Degrowth is a rejection of the illusion of growth and a call to repoliticize the public debate colonized by the idiom of economism. It is a project advocating the democratically-led shrinking of production and consumption with the aim of achieving social justice and ecological sustainability.

This overview of degrowth offers a comprehensive coverage of the main topics and major challenges of degrowth in a succinct, simple and accessible manner. In addition, it offers a set of keywords useful forintervening in current political debates and for bringing about concrete degrowth-inspired proposals at different levels - local, national and global.

The result is the most comprehensive coverage of the topic of degrowth in English and serves as the definitive international reference.

The title needs to be taken seriously. It's a vocabulary of 51 words or phrases, each of which receives a Wikipedia-type article. Difficult to plough through. And despite being aimed at the general reader, some of the authors are incapable of using simple language. Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής
