By Paul Hawken

The world has changed in the seventeen years since the controversial initial publication of Paul Hawken's The Ecology of Commerce, a stirring treatise about the perceived antagonism between ecology and business. Yet Hawken's impassioned argument - that business both causes the most egregious abuses of the environment and, crucially, holds the most potential for solving our sustainability problems - is more relevant and resonant than ever. Contains updated and revised material for the new audience, The Ecology of Commerce presents a compelling vision of the restorative (rather than destructive) economy we must create.
