Reviews

  1. Choice: February 2013

    The editors have made judicious choices about featured topics, given the vast geographic scope. . . . This 10-volume set (also available electronically) is a valuable acquisition for libraries. Summing up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers.

  2. Reference & Research Book News: February 2013

    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. Booklist: February 15, 2013

    This intriguing, interdisciplinary set puts a focus on solutions to global environmental issues and features concise overview essays on an array of sustainability-related topics, compiled into thematic volumes…. This encyclopedia, with its global perspective and unique focus on solutions and the future, is recommended for academic and large public libraries with collections on the environment.

  4. “Gro Harlem Brundtland, chair of the World Commission on Environment and Development and three-time prime minister of Norway”

    “The call we made in Our Common Future, back in 1987, is even more relevant today. Having a coherent resource like the Encyclopedia of Sustainability, written by experts yet addressed to students and general readers, is a vital step, because it will support education, enable productive debate, and encourage informed public participation as we join, again and again, in the effort to transform our common future.”
