Asia's Clean Revolution
Industry, Growth and the Environment

Posted: 24 Jul 2001

by David P. Angel and Michael T. Rock (eds)
Greenleaf Publishing, Sheffield, UK, 2000, �40.00/US$75.00

This book examines the prospects for a new development future in Asia: one that is far less energy- materials- and waste-intensive.

It lays out a vision of how developing economies might go beyond environmental regulation and put in place an array of policies and institutions that could integrate environmental, industrial and technological goals.

It is also one that should be helpful for negotiators considering climate change on a global scale.

With a set of specially commissioned chapters from leading authorities in North America and Asia, Asia's Clean Revolution present concrete policy solutions to the coming crisis driven by large-scale urban-industrial growth in developing Asia.
