About this book

Addresses the nature of sustainable development and what this means at the local level.

'Here at last is a book which takes a dispassionate look at the whole subject. It provides the reader with an opportunity to find out more about the theory and practice of local sustainability without the evangelical streak common in some other references' - Environmental Education Research 'This book features an integrated and systematic approach to the concept, providing an in-depth insight. The book can be easily understood by anyone with a general appreciation of environmental issues and is an ideal text for both undergraduates and postgraduates wishing to expand their knowledge on this issue' - Environmental Education and Information 'This book is an important contribution to the field of sustainability. It is well written, easy to read, contemporary and informative. The author is obviously comfortable writing about such a diverse and challenging topic... Local Sustainability is a very good book' - Environment and Planning 'Selman has researched the topic very thoroughly and has struggled through the complexities with great skill and given us the information to help our own thinking evolve' - Environmental Education Research 'Paul Selman's contribution to the emerging literature on the local dimension of sustainable development is to be welcomed for its straightforward and lucid treatment of the subject' - Journal of Environmental Planning & Management 'This text is a welcome contribution to the exploration of what can be done at a local level to protect the environment' - Local Government Studies 'It is very difficult to produce a textbook, especially in such a swift moving field, and this book is a considerable achievement' - Local Environment
