Behind the public's hope of effective action by governments on environmental issues lies a complex terrain of conceptual confusion, conflicts of interest and philosophical dispute. This is why some of the world's leading environmental thinkers have come together in this volume to probe critically the new language being developed by environmental professionals. They examine the contradictions inherent in the fashionable notion of sustainable development. They explore the emerging conflicts over the distribution of environmental risks between North and South. And they warn that 'global ecology' seen in a managerial perspective, may degenerate into an effor to redesign and manage Nature in order to keep economic growth going in the face of a rising tide of resource plunder and pollution. This book seeks to launch a critical debate in order to clarify the issues involves and what might constitute appropriate action.

About the Author:

Wolfgang Sachs is a researcher, writer, and university teacher in the field of environment, development and globalization.

Review:

'The future belongs to those who can think and act unencumbered by the categories handed down to them by the dominant and bankrupt culture of conventional social knowledge. By daring to shed this baggage, the authors have made this book an exciting testimony to the life-affirmative forces pitted against the present environmental crisis and the destruction of the traditional support systems of the more vulnerable cultures' - Ashis Nandy, Centre for the Study of Developing Sciences.
