Indeed, some blame producers of planning obsolescence into their products. Despite this, consumers are at the very least compliant- meaning the current throughput of materials and energy in industrialised economies is unsustainable.In this provocative book the creation of product durability and the design of longer-lasting solutions emerge as an absolutely vital element in the pursuit of sustainability.

Its multi-disciplinary approach consolidates the significant growth in product life-span knowledge from an impressive range of experts. Contributors discuss the different means of product life: historical, design, engineering, marketing, law, politics, consumer behaviour, technology and systems of provision, and the economic context of each.Resource scarcity has re-emerged as a threat to future generations - the debate now is how do we avoid economic, social and ecological collapse.
