New book helps to understand growth and sustainability in relation to climate change

Edward Elgar publishes new book — Handbook on Growth and Sustainability. Edited by Peter A. Victor, FES Professor, York University and Brett Dolter PhD'15, Post-doctoral Research Image of Handbook on Growth and Sustainability book coverFellow, University of Ottawa, Canada.

This Handbook assembles original contributions from influential authors such as Herman Daly, Paul Ekins, Marina Fischer-Kowalski, Jeroen van den Bergh, William E. Rees and Tim Jackson who have helped to define our understanding of growth and sustainability. The Handbook also presents new contributions on topics such as degrowth, the debt-based financial system, cultural change, energy return on investment, shorter working hours and employment, and innovation and technology. Explorations of these issues can deepen our understanding of whether growth is sustainable and, in turn, whether a move away from growth can be sustained. With issues such as climate change looming large, our understanding of growth and sustainability is critical. This Handbook offers a broad range of perspectives that can help the reader to decide: Growth? Sustainability? Both? Or neither?
