SKU: SUS9AFRO Categories: , Tag:


Afro-Eurasia: Assessing Sustainability focuses on the geographic area where humans originated and first began to make use of the natural world – Earth’s largest landmass, stretching from Portugal in the west across the steppes of Russia and south across Africa to the Cape of Good Hope. By examining the history of human expansion, as well as 21st century pressures to address ecosystem damage across the region, international scholars and regional experts weave sustainability into core curricular subjects. The interdisciplinary coverage includes national and regional environmental histories, as well as business and commerce, migration, educational institutions, law and government, and the lifestyles of diverse populations.

    Suitable for early undergraduate or general readers, the publisher’s 10-volume Berkshire Encyclopedia of Sustainability has been carefully planned to bring together a great deal of information in a package structured for student research. The planners have taken the very broad concept of sustainability and looked for logical ways to divide and sub-divide relevant material for presentation in alphabetically arranged articles.

  3. Reference & Research Book News

    “Volume 9, Afro-Eurasia: Assessing Sustainability, is one of three devoted to a geographical area and to “assessing sustainability” –providing a snapshot of current issues and activities. The introductory essay acknowledges that the concept of “Afro-Eurasia” is not widely used among the general population, but it’s useful when considering interrelated geographical systems. The other two regional volumes focus on China, India, and East and Southeast Asia (v. 7), and The Americas and Oceania (v. 8).
