  4. Sustainability: Prose and Poetry

    The works of textbook author Margaret Robertson (Sustainability Principles and Practice) and poet Howard W. Robertson focus on similar themes of sustainability, interconnectedness, and the biosphere. In this joint reading they illustrate how these ideas can be expressed in multiple ways using the language of prose and of poetry. The readers give an overview of the fundamental concepts on which this interdisciplinary field is built, offering the dual perspectives of scholarship and lyrical writing in service of its essential meaning.

  9. Interview with Dr. John Stanton, Author of Democratic Sustainability in a New Era of Localism

    Democratic Sustainability in a New Era of Localism, available May 2014, considers whether democracy enhances decision-making processes pertaining to the achievement of local sustainable development in England and how such decision-making might best be used to improve the achievement of sustainable development. It is retrospective in its analysis and prospective in its conclusions in that it seeks to draw from what has happened over recent years and offers possible ways in which local sustainable development might be improved in the future.  We recently spoke with author John Stanton about what led him to write the book and what he would like to see implemented as a result. Please read on to see the interview and learn more about this new book.
