Book Description

The notion of ‘sustainability’ has been growing in importance over the last twenty years, and is now considered a significant area of study.

This four-volume set introduces the reader to ‘sustainability’ as a concept, a contested idea, and a political goal. Bringing together a range of articles and published papers that have influenced the course of thinking in social science, the collection examines the links between the natural and social sciences, as well as the public policies that thought surrounding sustainability has helped to develop.
