    UIT Cambridge Ltd. 2013; US$ 10.99

    Something is stirring. People around the world are deciding that the wellbeing of their local community and its economy lies with them. They're people like you. They're rolling up their sleeves, getting together with friends and neighbours and doing something about it. Whether they start small or big, they find that just doing stuff can transform their... more...

  • Greener than Thouby Terry L. Anderson; Laura E. Huggins

    Hoover Institution Press 2008; US$ 14.99

    In a powerful argument for free market environmentalism, Terry Anderson and Laura Huggins break down liberal and conservative stereotypes of what it means to be an environmentalist.

    Springer Netherlands 2013; Not Available

    This book elaborates on the Khazan ecosystems of Goa, India.

Khazan... more...

  • Environmental Movements in Asiaby Arne Kalland; Gerard Persoon

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 73.95

    This volume paints a general picture of the environmental situation in Asia, backing it up with several case studies. Two major points are made in this general picture. The first is that environmental campaigns in Asia tend to have a local focus; they react to very concrete problems in the immediate neighbourhood and as such usually people are engaged... more...

  • Becoming Native To This Placeby Wes Jackson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2013; US$ 25.00

    The New World -- this empty land dazzlingly rich in forests, soils, rainfall, and mineral wealth -- was to represent a new beginning for civilized humanity. Unfortunately, even the best of the European settles had a stronger eye for conquest than for justice. Natives were in the way -- surplus people who must be literally displaced. Now, as ecologist... more...

  • All You Need Is Lessby Madeleine Somerville; Billee Sharp

    Cleis Press Start 2014; US$ 16.99

    Most eco-friendly books start with terror-inducing lists of the carcinogenic chemicals you are liberally slathering all over every single surface in your house, painting most people as as unwitting eco-villains, happily Lysol-ing your way straight to hell. Well, readers can just relax and unpack the (plastic) bags no guilt trips today! At this... more...

  • Social Theory and the Environmentby David Goldblatt

    Wiley 2013; US$ 64.95

  • Environmentalismby David Peterson Del Mar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Why are our environmental problems still growing despite a huge increase in global conservation efforts? Peterson del Mar untangles this paradox by showing how prosperity is essential to environmentalism. Industrialization drove people to look for meaning in nature even as they consumed its products more relentlessly. Hence England led the way in... more...

  • Getting to Grips with Green Plansby Barry Dalal Clayton

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 35.00

    One of the more significant recommendations to emerge from UNCED in 1992 was the call in Agenda 21 for countries to develop and implement national sustainable development strategies. Most countries have responded to this challenge. However many countries also have a long history of drawing up planning exercises at this level to deal with environmental... more...
