The late historian and economist David Fleming was one of Transition's pioneers, and his compelling, entertaining, and powerfully-different vision for a post-growth society has been brought to posthumous publication by Transition author Shaun Chamberlin. Shaun hosts a conversation on Transition's engagement with the greatest challenges of our times.
