About this book

Authoritative tome on the nature and meaning of sustainability which derived from a study group constituted at the 41st Pugwash Conference on Science and World Affairs held in Beijing in 1991. It is, in essence, an attack on biased Northern perspectives which fail to take account of the historical North/South dichotomy and the resultant divides this has created, and also an attempt to create a more holistic and humanistic approach to this concept, in theory and practice.
