At the Edge is a rich and evocative call to action at a time when new ideas are urgently needed. Mandatory reading for policy analysts and decision makers in the public, private, and volunteer sectors, it will be equally useful to scholars, teachers, students, and others interested in creating sustainable societies. Throughout the world, biophysical evidence is mounting that human growth and activity patterns are slowly destroying the earth. This ecological deterioration is accompanied by similar social and economic decline, with potentially grave consequences for the continued existence of human societies.
This book represents a remarkable achievement. It contains a sweeping grasp of the literature on both Canadian policy and sustainable development and presents a compelling picture of the need to act quickly to preserve our country's natural heritage as well as that of the planet. -- Professor Frances Westley, Faculty of Management, McGill University
This timely book argues for governance based on human responsibility and recognition of the interconnectedness of human and natural systems.
