9780415964654: Understanding the Social Dimension of Sustainability (Routledge Studies in Development and Society)

The imperative of the twenty-first century is sustainability: to raise the living standards of the world's poor and to achieve and maintain high levels of social health among the affluent nations while simultaneously reducing and reversing the environmental damage wrought by human activity. Scholars and practitioners are making progress toward environmental and economic sustainability, but we have very little understanding of the social dimension of sustainability.

This volume is an ambitious, multi-disciplinary effort to identify the key elements of social sustainability through an examination of what motivates its pursuit and the conditions that promote or detract from its achievement. Included are theoretical and empirical pieces; examination of international and local efforts; discussions highlighting experiences in both the developing and industrialized nations; and a substantial focus on business practices. Contributors are grounded in sociology, economics, business administration, public administration, public health, geography, education and natural resource management.

About the Author :

Jesse Dillard currently holds the Retzlaff Chair in Accounting, is Director of the Center for Professional Integrity and Accountability in the School of Business at Portland State University and holds an honorary appointment in the University of Sheffield’s Management School.

Veronica Dujon is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Sociology at Portland State University, where she co-teaches a seminar on Social Sustainability.

Mary C. King is Professor of Economics at Portland State University, where she co-teaches a graduate course on Social Sustainability with Veronica Dujon and Barbara Dudley.

Review :

This book breaks new ground in the important area of social sustainability – a topic that is frequently mentioned by business people, investors, academics, and others, but is not yet well understood. This book combines detailed, on-the-ground examples with a strong theoretic overview. It will advance understanding and application of the idea of sustainable societies.



-- Neva Goodwin, lead author of the textbooks, Micro and Macro-Economics in Context, and Co-director of the Global Development And Environment Institute at Tufts University
