Routledge/Earthscan — the world’s leading publisher of books on sustainability — now offers updated paperback editions of Alan AtKisson’s books BELIEVING CASSANDRA and THE SUSTAINABILITY TRANSFORMATION.
The updated edition of BELIEVING CASSANDRA includes a stirring new Foreword by Paul Hawken, who calls the book “exceptionally readable” and likens it to a “neurotransmitter” that helps signal the path to a sustainable future. This beautiful new edition also includes fully updated global data, new case studies and examples, as well updates to the memorable anecdotes and diary entries that AtKisson uses to help make sustainability both more personal, and more understandable. The new material in BELIEVING CASSANDRA draws on an additional decade of experience, including Alan’s work for the United Nations leading up to and including the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009.
In THE SUSTAINABILITY TRANSFORMATION, AtKisson and Earthscan have taken the successful 2008 hardback “The ISIS Agreement” and repackaged it in a beautiful paperback edition, with a new preface, a new cover, and even a new title. THE SUSTAINABILITY TRANSFORMATION has been adopted by international sustainability training programs, and the new preface helps to guide professionals and students — as well as general interest readers — to those parts of the book that they will find most immediately useful. Renowned writer, editor, and climate activist Bill McKibben has called THE SUSTAINABILITY TRANSFORMATION “beyond useful — it’s necessary, rigorous, comprehensive, unsentimental, and yet highly readable, even moving.”
