About the Author

Leslie Paul Thiele teaches political theory and serves as Director of Sustainability Studies at the University of Florida. His interdisciplinary research focuses on sustainability issues and the intersection of political philosophy and the natural sciences. His central concerns are the responsibilities of citizenship and the opportunities for leadership in a world of rapid technological, social, and ecological change.


"Whether and how humankind survives the bottleneck ahead is the issue of our time. Les Thiele is a thoughtful and insightful guide to the perplexing and complex issues ahead. This is the best short book on sustainability in print." David W. Orr, Oberlin College, author of Dangerous Years: Climate Change, the Long Emergency, and the Way Forward "There are lots of books about sustainability these days, but this one tells the story in a way that is both compelling and inspiring. It's one of the best introductions to the topic I have seen and at the same time has the perceptive depth to engage experienced practitioners." Robert Costanza, Australian National University
