Kent Business School’s Dr Sideeq Mohammed‘s latest book, entitled Stories and Organization in the Anthropocene: A Critical Look at the Impossibility of Sustainability has been published by Palgrave Macmillan.
Dr Mohammed, Associate Dean of Education and UG Student Experience and Lecturer in HRM/Organisational Behaviour at KBS penned the book with view to evaluate the stories being told in the period of time in Earth’s history when human activity started to have a significant impact on the planet’s climate and ecosystems, The Anthropocene.
In the video below, Dr Mohammed discusses the thoughts and themes that went into the book, which is available to purchase now.
He says: “The book proposes a simple thought experiment. You try to imagine a space where capitalism can live forever, long after resource extraction has become impossible and all humans outside this protected enclave have died due to economic collapse. Can it survive there?”
