Prince Charles book to stress harmony with nature

Prince Charles will write a book arguing that the world's pursuit of economic growth and technology has become "dangerously disconnected" from nature, publishers said on April 20, according to a Reuters report.

The book, to be titled Harmony, is due to be released in 2010, publisher HarperCollins, part of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, said in a statement. A picture book version for children is to be published in 2011.

"I believe that true 'sustainability' depends fundamentally upon us shifting our perception and widening our focus, so that we understand, again, that we have a sacred duty of stewardship of the natural order of things," Prince Charles, 60, said in the statement. "In some of our actions we now behave as if we were 'masters of nature' and, in others, as mere bystanders," he said, adding that society needed to rediscover a sense of harmony, of being a part of nature.
