About this book

Still regarded as a benchmark text by environmental managers, and used on a wide range of academic courses, this revised edition builds on and enhances the chief strength of the first edition: its linkage of theoretical analysis to active case studies in environmental management from around the world. It includes new and updated facts and data, together with a range of new case studies on: local sustainability networks; regional sustainability networks; the sustainability state; networks for global action.

'It is well written and contains interesting case studies.' Axel Marx, Katholieke Universiteit van Leuven, Belgium


The Western view of humankind and nature; global integration and local democracy; innovative management for sustainable development; case studies in innovative management.
