"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..."
