About this book

Outlines the Islamic view of the cosmic order and considers how it may be applied to such environmental problems as pollution and water scarcity. Sections on social justice and on issues of sustainability and development look at the roots of the current environmental crisis; at women's rights of access to both natural and social resources; and at the interconnectedness of environmental protection and the alleviation of poverty.
