`This insightful book about sustainable development in the Pacific islands explores the constraints to growth in those small worlds, examines the potential for sustainability especially when based on diverse local strategies and cultural beliefs, and offers a clearheaded guid to what can be done both in the Pacific and in the larger world to move beyond rhetoric towards processes that will encourage real sustainability.` - Dr William C Clarke, Fellow, Institute of Pacific Studies, University of the South Pacific `This book reaches beyond the buzzwords of sustainable development and discusses the real and intricate challenges of environment and development in the complex region of the Pacific` - W.
