Product Description

Review

"Brian Walker and David Salt have written a thoughtful and powerful book to help resource users and managers put resilience thinking into practice and aim toward increasing the sustainability of our world. I urge public officials, scholars, and students in public policy programs to place this volume on their list of must-read books. It is a powerful antidote to the overly simplified proposals too often offered as solutions to contemporary problems at multiple scales."--Elinor Ostrom "Senior Research Director, Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis "

The emergence of new thinking on how to systematically think about and plan for a sustainable future 11 July 2013
By Jerry A. Moles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is another in a series of presentations about how to build resiliency in both landscapes and economies. While much of the early writing was difficult an an introduction, this is a followup to an earlier book by this author and David Salt. The question is great given population growth and environmental degradation, "how can landscapes and communities absorb disturbance and maintain function?" In a sense, this should be a five star book because the terrain is so difficult and the current thinking still in flux that a more complete or elaborate presentation isn't possible at the moment. Nonetheless, this is a very useful contribution and can be understood by most interested parties. Thanks Brian for this new contribution.

Forced to read this for a university class. Glad I did. Very informative and can use the information in many disciplines other than tree huggin'. Must have for continuity / contingency planners.

Case studies brought life to concepts. Great companion to Resilience Thinking. Applications of concepts not sugarcoated or doomday but realistic.
