Reviews

"Only every now and then do we have the opportunity to learn about efforts to make real some rendering of what could be sustainable -on-the-ground, in the communitypresents such an opportunityis well worth reading. It is not doctrinaire about what works, it is rich in its portrayals, and it does not allow for easy trademarks and formulas; also, it offers insights about the role and perspective of the researcher in relation to the community. For environmental practitioners who hold themselves to a complex view - beyond the straightforwardly ecologic - these studies will prove to be very helpful." -Environmental Practice, March 1999
