New Book - State of the world 2005

State of the world 2005: a Worldwatch Institute report on progress toward a sustainable society
Earthscan, 2005, 333.72 STA

Worldwatch takes a new look at the theme that has dominated international politics since 9/11: security. Focussing not the armed conflicts but the underlying social, economic and environmental pressures which determine how threatened and vulnerable people feel, State of the world 2005 seeks to understand the social and political significance of food, water, natural resources, environmental and health threats as thr key global issues of today. State of the World is a resource relied upon by national governments, UN agencies, development workers and law-makers for its authoritative and up-to-the-minute analysis and information. It is valuable for anyone concerned with building a positive, global future.
