Focuses on the challenge of turning international commitments and policy promises into action. Using examples and cases from around the U.S. and around the world, it examines the successful and failed efforts designed to address the social, environmental, and economic dimensions of sustainable development.

Reviews

"An excellent book that presents sustainable development in a comprehensive fashion. Thorough, well researched, and precisely on target, the authors frame the implementation issues very well. A welcomed addition to the literature."-Sylvester Murray, Professor of Urban Studies and Public Administration, Cleveland State University



"What I appreciate about it most is its thorough and cross-disciplinary focus on the feasibility for sustainable development. I welcome it as a thorough treatment of the feasibility of sustainable development in the 'real world.'"-Jack Manno, SUNY-Syracuse



"A rich source of detailed examples illustrating the successes and failures of sustainable development projects in both developing and developed countries. The book provides a comprehensive framework for assessing the causes of those successes and failures, and thereby a means to anticipate and correct potential pitfalls in future efforts. Its thorough documentation, lucid prose, and abundant case studies make this book an important resource for students and practitioners alike."-Karina Garbesi, Geography & Environmental Studies, CSU-Hayward

"The wide range of case studies illustrate well the problems and possibilities of applying the principles of sustainable development in our communities."-Barry Allen, Department of Environmental Studies, Rollins College
