Reviews

"I enjoyed very much reading this book. It is a quite ambitious work. The author describes clearly and comprehensively the "Definition of Sustainable Engineering" and its "Theory and Practice". Chapters 4, 5, 7, and 8 are very attractive and the author has explained them quite deductively. In particular, chapter 8, includes the future needs for sustainability. There are very useful comments. I hope this book will be one of charts and/or tools for establishing UN Sustainable Development Goals."

~Masashi Kamon, Professor Emeritus of Kyoto University and President of Research Institute for Environmental Geotechnics, Japan
