Abstract

It is my great pleasure to introduce this captivating and engaging volume to readers. The Routledge Handbook of the History of Sustainability will become a foundational work in both the historical study of sustainability and in the many interdisciplinary “sustainability studies” programs that are now found in universities across the globe. It brings together some of the leading scholars who study the history, theory, and practice of sustainability, and introduces students and a general readership to historical trends, core issues, and key debates in the field. It can be considered the “state of the art” on the deep roots and recent history of sustainability, which, as a movement, will continue to have a major impact on twenty-first-century global society.
