  1. Diversifying Food and Diets by Jessica Fanzo, Danny Hunter, Teresa Borelli and Federico Mattei

    Currently 925 million people are undernourished and 195 million children under five years of age are stunted. At the same time, over 1 billion people are overweight and obese in both the developed and developing world. This book explores the current state of knowledge on the role of agricultural biodiversity in improving nutrition and food security through improved dietary quality.

  2. The No-Growth Imperative by Gabor Zovanyi

    More than two decades of mounting evidence confirms that the existing scale of the human enterprise has surpassed global ecological limits to growth. Based on such limits, The No-Growth Imperative discounts current efforts to maintain growth through eco-efficiency initiatives and smart-growth programs, and argues that growth is inherently unsustainable and that the true nature of the challenge confronting us now is one of replacing the current growth imperative with a no-growth imperative.

  3. Transforming Urban Transport by Nicholas Low

    Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the dilemma faced by a world wedded to mobility: the danger of continuing along the fossil-fueled path and the real paucity of viable technological alternatives which can be deployed in time. To respond to the dilemma, the ideal of urban transportation must be changed from auto-based mobility to systems of sustainable transportation in which public transportation, and non-motorised transportation work together to reduce climate change pressures, enhance urban quality and preserve life and health.

  4. Shaping Places (August 2012)

    Review of Shaping Places
    "In the dark days of public sector retrenchment and the loss of a progressive role for planning it’s more important than ever that our understanding of place making is not forgotten. David Adams and Steve Tiesdell have spent the last decade exploring successful places. Shaping Places is the culmination of that work. In what will undoubtedly become a key text Shaping Places assembles a wide range of international research and experiences around the processes of making socially, environmentally and economically successful places." - Phil Allmendinger, Professor of Land Economy and Head of the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge

  6. Animal Husbandry Regained by A. John F. Webster

    The farming of animals for meat and milk confronts a stark dilemma. While world demand from a growing and more affluent human population is increasing rapidly, there are strong counter-arguments that we should eat less meat and pay more attention to environmental protection, animal welfare and human health and well-being. The aim of this book is to identify and explain the causes and contributors to current problems in animal husbandry, especially those related to 'factory farming', and advance arguments that may contribute to its successful re-orientation.

  7. Climate Change Ethics by Donald Brown

    Climate change is now the biggest challenge faced by humanity worldwide and ethics is the crucial missing component to the debate. This book examines why thirty-five years of discussion of human-induced warming has failed to acknowledge fundamental ethical concerns, and subjects climate change’s most important policy questions to ethical analysis.

  10. Human Dependence on Nature by Haydn Washington

    Humanity is dependent on Nature to survive, yet our society largely acts as if this is not the case. The energy that powers our very cells, the nutrients that make up our bodies, the ecosystem services that clean our water and air; these are all provided by the Nature from which we have evolved and of which we are a part. This book examines why we deny or ignore this dependence and what we can do differently to help solve the environmental crisis.
