Summary

Amory B. Lovins is one of the world's leading authorities on energy, integrative design, and their links with economy, environment, development, and security. This unique collection brings together his most important and influential writings and forms an inspiring resource for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the issues which lie at the heart of sustainability and energy challenges. Featuring work from across his long career spanning energy, design, transport, climate, security, law, mountaineering, politics, proliferation, health, business, biotechnology, physics, and politics, the book explores the relevance of the ideas to the sustainability problems we face today – a relevance which is often [exasperatingly] evident. The collection also includes old and new personal essays on the environment and poignant letters to the editor. The selection shows Lovins' development as an expert in the complex technical fields of energy and resource policy as well as his simple love of the planet we call home.

A key 'getting up to speed' text for undergraduate and graduate students on sustainability-related courses, it also arms professionals with the visions and arguments they need to drive through policy and innovation, and is an inspiring read for anyone working in or interested in the field of sustainability.
