State of the World 1997: A Worldwatch Institute Report on Progress Toward a Sustainable Society by Lester Russell Brown
As the evidence mounts of environmental damage, more and more people are seeing our natural world as vital to thriving economies and individual well-being. State of the World 1997 shows the clear connection between the environment and such seemingly disparate concerns as national security, public health, economic growth, and the abundance of food. "A brilliant series."--Utne Reader. Charts.
