This revised and updated new edition retains the clear and powerful
argument which characterized the original. It gives a valuable
analysis of the theory and practice of sustainable development and
suggests that at the start of the new millennium, we should think
radically about the challenge of sustainability. Fully revised,
this latest edition includes further reading, chapter outlines,
chapter summaries and new discussion topics, and explores: the
roots of sustainable development thinking and its evolution in the
last three decades of the twentieth century the dominant ideas
within mainstream sustainable development the nature and diversity
of alternative ideas about sustainability the problems of
environmental degradation and the environmental impacts of
development strategies for building sustainability in development
from above and below. Offering a synthesis of theoretical ideas on
sustainability based on the industrialized economies of the North
and the practical, applied ideas in the South which tend to ignore
'First World' theory, this important text gives a clear discussion
of theory and extensive practical insights drawn from Africa, Latin
America and Asia.
