The Wadebridge Press Announces:

The Stable Society

Its Structure and Control: towards a social cybernetics by Edward Goldsmith

There is much talk of a steady-state or stable society. Few however have considered what this really implies. In this book, the author considers a traditional human society (one that has not disintegrated into the atomised society we live in today) as a natural system and shows how it is controlled and hence how its stability is maintained.
