Review of Paul Hanley's new book Eleven
by Arthur Dahl
Eleven by Paul Hanley. Friesen Press, Victoria, BC, Canada, 2014. 400 p.
"Eleven billion people will populate this marvelous planet by the end of this century. Adding almost 4 billion to an already overburdened world will force everyone to change everything. The sweeping changes that make an 11 billion-world work will wholly transform humankind, reshaping its inner life and external conditions. This process will result in the emergence of a new culture, a new agriculture, and ultimately a new human race." This is how Paul Hanley introduces his new book and explains the title "Eleven".
