The articles in this E-book each convey the theme of interconnectedness in unscripted times the awareness that what happens to some of us affects us all. Beginning with Stuteville and Ikerds Global sustainability and service-learning: Paradigms for the future, we find a comprehensive analysis of the dominant neoclassical economic theories, with a focus on the scant attention paid to sustainability in the traditional economic models. The authors compel us to embrace the sustainable classical theorists of Smith, Malthus, Ricardo, and Mill these classical theorists saw the field of economics as a tool for enhancing the stability and well-being of society, not as a tool for compromising the well-being of society to enrich a select few. In this paper, Stuteville and Ikerd articulate the core values of sustainability and how they are translated into, and effectively expressed through, the practice of service-learning.
