Language: English . Brand New Book. The United Nations has pithily defined sustainable development as progress that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs . But sustainable development remains highly contested and is subject to a wide variety of interpretations, applications, and criticisms. Moreover, those seeking fully to understand this critical concept are confronted with a (sometimes dispiritingly) voluminous body of scholarly, polemical, and journalistic writing. Edited by the acclaimed author of Understanding Sustainable Development (Earthscan, 2008), this new title from Routledge s Critical Concepts in the Environment series answers the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the vast literature on sustainable development, and the continuing explosion in research output. Drawing on a wide variety of sources that take full cognizance of the rich background and necessary adaptability of the concept to the imperatives of time, place, and culture, and which emphasize its connected and transdisciplinary nature, the editor has brought together in four volumes the canonical and the best cutting-edge work to produce an indispensable mini library . The collection covers the history, mediation, application, and likely future orientations of sustainable development, both conceptually and as a continually emerging practice. Sustainable Development is fully indexed and includes comprehensive introductions, newly written by the editor, which place the collected materials in their historical and intellectual context. It is an essential reference collection and is certain to be valued by scholars and students-as well as serious policy-makers and practitioners-as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
