About the Author

Simon Dresner is a research fellow in the Environment Group at the Policy Studies Institute, UK.


A concise overview of the past, present and future of sustainaibility.' Future Survey 'Clear [and] readable.' Oxfam Praise for the first edition: 'A great refresher course ... It's very thorough, describing the crucial events, introducing the necessary jargon, summarizing the various points of view.' Clean Slate 'Goes beyond the rhetoric to explain the deeper issues of sustainability in a way that is accessible and interesting to the non-specialist reader.' Cultural Survival Quarterly 'Dresner does in the space of 200 pages what many other writers have failed to do in texts of far greater length. He provides a rapid fire introduction to the origins, evolution and current state of thinking on sustainability and, in doing so, he offers a combined analysis and critique.' Business Strategy and the Environment 'An entertaining, informative and sometimes downright irreverent romp through the ragged peaks and swampy hinterland of sustainability, Dresner's book deserves to be read by students, practitioners and aficionados of sustainable development alike.' Tim Jackson, Professor of Sustainable Development, University of Surrey 'Simon Dresner has succeeded in contributing a thought-provoking insight to the subject area, which is both articulate and stimulating for his readers.' Journal of Environment Assessment Policy and Management 'A valuable addition to the intellectual literature on sustainability.' The Journal of Energy and Development
