Seeking Sustainability in an Age of Complexity


Seeking Sustainability in an Age of Complexity

Seeking Sustainability in an Age of Complexity explains the difficulty of sustainability and why 'collapse' can occur. Using ideas from complexity theory, and its application in the areas of ecology, sociology and economics, Graham Harris weaves together a story showing just how complex the idea of achieving sustainability is, when applied at global and regional scales. This book will be of interest to ecologists, sociologists, economists, natural resource managers and scientists in State and local governments and those involved in water and landscape management.
