Abstract: 

Industrial development has environmental and social costs. The extraction of natural resources disrupts the landscape, and industry pollutes the land, air and water. People are affected as farmland and towns are displaced in favor of new mines, factories, buildings and urban housing. As nations around the world develop on the Western industrial model, they are finding that environmental and social issues and economic growth are often in conflict. New technologies and more traditional ideas like a locally-based economy are generating sustainable models for society. Available for loan.
