This new paperback series will regularly publish some of our most popular titles in agriculture, architecture, chemistry, engineering and technology, earth and environmental sciences, life sciences, mathematics, medicine, physics and statistics. More information on each of these titles can be found in this catalog (see pages indicated). These titles join those published in the series earlier this year (formerly known as the Wiley Science Paperback Series).
This book offers practical, realistic methods for reversing the effects of environmental catastrophe caused by industry. It defines regenerative design, and describes practical applications to the essential systems of land development: energy flow, water flow, agriculture and land use, and building design.
Discusses not just the theory and the technology, but also the social, economic and political context in which change must take place.
-- Uses case studies to show how different methods can be applied to a variety of problems.
