'An extraordinary review of a complex and evolving dilemma.' 'If the first Earth Summit was high on idealism but low on practicality, Earth Summit 2002 threatens to reverse the pattern. This vital pre-summit reader manages to combine the highest and best of both.' David Boyle, New Economics Foundation 'It is an incredibly useful resource for teaching and research, both in terms of the range of valuable information and the visions for sustainable development laid out within its pages. Compared to much academic literature, a spirit of unapologetic realism can be found in most of the chapters.' Environmental Politics 'This is quite a technical book but for all who value the future of our fragile world, a necessary study.' City To Cities, Issue 15, April/May 2002
