* Major new textbook on the geography of sustainable development* Collaborative effort from one of the UK's leading geography departments* Ideal for undergraduates in geography, environmental science and social scienceSustainable development is the new mantra, but what does it mean on the ground in how people relate to the physical environment and across landscapes? This book offers fresh insights into sustainable development by looking at it from a range of geographical perspectives. Building on existing theory, it demonstrates geography's unique contribution to the study of human-environment relationships, and examines sustainability at the full range of spatial scales from the global to the local. Both theory and practice are discussed as the book explores sustainable development in urban and rural areas, in both developing and developed countries. The contributors suggest that the future path of sustainability is ours to forge if we make the choice and take action.

Note Editore

Sustainable development is capturing the attention of planners, politicians and business leaders. Within the academic sphere its study is increasingly breaching disciplinary boundaries to become a focus of attention for natural and social scientists alike. But in studying such a key concept, it is vital that there is a clear definition of what it means, how it is applied on the ground, and the influence it exerts upon people's perceptions of change in the physical environment, economic activity and society. Exploring Sustainable Development is a major new text which provides a multifaceted introduction to key areas of study in this field, examining sustainability at the full range of spatial scales from the local to the global. Building on existing theory it demonstrates the unique contributions that thinking geographically about space, place and human-environment relationships can bring to the analysis of sustainable development. This book explores different interpretations of sustainable development in both theory and practice, in developed and developing countries, and in rural and urban areas. It pays particular attention to the local, national and international politics of implementation, the future of climate and energy, the role of business, and different conceptions of agricultural sustainability. This wide-ranging text is ideal for undergraduates and postgraduates in geography, environmental science, development studies, and related social and political sciences.


Martin Purvis and Alan Grainger are Senior Lecturers in Geography at the University of Leeds.
