    A Valuable Resource for America's Leaders In Governments, Business, And Education

    "Agenda for a Sustainable America" is "the third review in an ongoing project to evaluate U.S. efforts for sustainable development and make recommendations for future actions...

    ...This book has both critical and constructive components. It is intended to provide a critical appraisal of U.S. activities, indentifying both progress and shortcomings. It is also intended to be constructive, primarily by making recommendation. The broader aim of the book is to help build an analytical and policy foundation for sustainable development in the United States, not only for specific issues and problems but also as a conceptual framework for achieving prosperity and human well-being..." Professor John C. Dernbach writes.

    As a professor of law at Widener University Law School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, John C. Dernbach uses his teaching and government service experience and puts down great information in "Agenda for a Sustainable America" as an Editor and Contributing Author.

    "Agenda for a Sustainable America" includes eight sections: Introduction; Six Areas of Greater Progress; Consumption, Population and Poverty; Conservation and Management of Natural Resources; Waste and Toxic Chemicals; Land Use and Transportation; International Trades, Finance, and Development Assistance; State and Federal Governance. These eight sections are further broken into 31 chapters, and they are filled with data, facts, and the well-informed opinions of thirty-two experts.

    "Agenda for a Sustainable America" has 509 pages. It is a valuable resource for America's leaders in governments, business, and education.
