Review:

'Goes deep into the details and presents the available scientific data for explaining the different issues using interdisciplinary approaches ... Extremely useful, especially [for] teachers.' Alexandre Kiss, formerly President, European Council on Environmental Law 'This is the most thoughtful, interdisciplinary and practical introduction to sustainable development that I have read. It is an outstanding contribution to the fi eld and it is recommended as an excellent source for academics, researchers and students. It is particularly useful for the insights into global, regional and economic aspects and makes workable suggestions for the way forward.' Professor Donna Craig, Centre for Environmental Law, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia 'The authors use uncomplicated language and simple illustrations to explain the underlying concepts of sustainable development. The book provides an in valuable introduction to the subject for students, professionals and the lay public.' Ralph Mitchell, Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Biology, Harvard University, USA 'This excellent book is a must for libraries, students and researchers in environmental law. The authors bring with them a wealth of practical experience from different dimensions ... and provide a refreshing insight into the issues posed by the environment.' Emeritus Professor Koh Kheng-Lian of the Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore 'A truly worthwhile compendium focusing on sustainable development issues.' Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations 'The conceptual breadth is impressive. The examples and many graphics are appealing ... downright useful.' Richard Forman, Professor of Landscape Ecology, Harvard School of Design, USA 'It is a wonderful presentation of a diverse set of information.' Professor Allan Freeze, former Professor and Director in the Geological Engineering Program at the University of British Columbia, Canada 'A seminal and highly readable book.' Charles Okidi, Professor, Institute for Development Studies, and Director of the Centre for Advanced Studies on Environmental Law and Policy (CASELAP), University of Nairobi, Kenya 'covers a wide range of interesting topics' European Review of Agricultural Economics, vol 36 'I found this book to be an excellent introductory text to the real world concept of sustainable development...accessible, well-structured and particularly infromative.' Harrison, J ( 2010), International Journal of Environment and Pollution. 'The reader is encouraged, through a number of useful real world examples, to apprecate the concept from multiple angles, and is supported in doing so by the presentation of numerous excellent figures and diagrams on the topic.' Harrison, J ( 2010), International Journal of Environment and Pollution.
