"Sustainability." Leslie Paul Thiele. Polity. January 2013. --- Increasingly, sustainability provides a common language and goal for diverse peoples and nations. Yet the meaning of sustainability remains unsettled, and the term frequently serves as a PR strategy rather than a driver of fundamental change. Leslie Paul Thiele‘s book aims to provide a broad–ranging introduction to the concept and practice of sustainability today. It addresses the history, scope, and contested meanings of sustainability as an ethical ideal, an ascendant ideology, and a common sense approach to living in an ever more crowded world of increasingly scarce resources. John Cullen finds a clear, concise and passionately written text to recommend.
