Edited by Carl A. Maida

The concept of sustainability holds that the social, economic, and
environmental factors within human communities must be viewed interactively
and systematically. Sustainable development cannot be understood apart from
a community, its ethos, and ways of life. Although broadly conceived, the
pursuit of sustainable development is a local practice because every
community has different needs and quality of life concerns. Within this
framework, contributors representing the disciplines of anthropology,
sociology, geography, economics, law, public policy, architecture, and urban
studies explore sustainability in communities in the Pacific, Latin America,
Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe, and North America.

Contributors: Janet E. Benson, Karla Caser, Snjezana Colic, Angela Ferreira,
