An Introduction to Sustainable Development by Jennifer A. Elliott
Publication Date: 1993-12-16
Development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This is the definition from the Brundtland report. This book works to examine how and why we need to work not only on environmental concerns but global welfare concerns as well.
International Development by Paul Battersby (Editor); Ravi K. Roy (Editor)
Publication Date: 2017-08-04
How can we lay the foundation for a more just and peaceful world? How can we prevent communications from fracturing and societies from tearing themselves apart? How should we prioritize economic, social, and cultural demands for resources and opportunities? International Development answers these questions and presents a view of development "in practice."
Green Development by William M. Adams
Publication Date: 1992-07-10
Adams analyses the evolution of the concept of `sustainable development' and assesses how this can be applied in the real world. Bridging the gap between ecology and development studies, he argues that the `greeness' of development planning is not to be found in a concern for ecology of the environment, but in control, power and self-determination.
