Description About the author Contents
 
Asoka Bandarage provides an integrated analysis of the twin challenges of environmental sustainability and human well-being by investigating them as interconnected phenomena requiring a paradigmatic psychosocial transformation. She presents an incisive social science analysis and an alternative philosophical perspective on the needed transition from a worldview of domination to one of partnership.
'In this meticulously researched scholarly work, Bandarage brilliantly demonstrates that environmental sustainability and social justice are inseparable problems requiring a fundamental social and psychological transformation. Sustainability and Well-Being synthesizes a vast amount of data and research from a broad range of fields from global political economy to religion and philosophy. Yet, this work is highly accessible to a wide readership. It is lucidly written and provides a balanced and compassionate perspective that is much-needed in the world at this time. It is a must read for professionals and students of Environmental Studies; Global Studies, Women's Studies and the Social Sciences in General. This book is highly recommended and represents another scholarly triumph for Asoka Bandarage. ' - Filomina Chioma Steady, Wellesley College, USA
