Most widely held works by Wolfgang Sachs
The Development dictionary : a guide to knowledge as power by Wolfgang Sachs( Book )
59 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and held by 903 libraries worldwide
"In this classic collection, some of the world's most eminent critics of development review the key concepts of the development discourse. Each essay examines one concept from a historical and anthropological point of view, highlights its particular bias, and exposes its historical obsolescence and intellectual sterility. The authors argue that a bidding farewell to the whole Euro-centric development idea is urgently needed, in order to liberate people's minds - in both North and South - for bold responses to the environmental and ethical challenges now confronting humanity. The combined result forms a must-read invitation to experts, grassroots movements and students of development to recognize the tainted glasses they put on whenever they participate in the development discourse."--Back cover

Planet dialectics : explorations in environment and development by Wolfgang Sachs( Book )

"Wolfgang Sachs has become known as one of the most thoughtful and appealing intellectuals to interrogate the world which the West has created in the latter half of the 20th century. He confronts the way in which it undermines both nature and social justice. And in order to protect the biosphere and achieve equity between human beings, he demands civilizational changes from the global consumer classes. Here for the first time, his most seminal writings, including several hitherto unpublished articles, are brought together in a single volume."--Jacket

Fair future : begrenzte Ressourcen und globale Gerechtigkeit ; ein Report ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in German and held by 122 libraries worldwide
Ölkrise, Wasserkonflikte, schwindende Ernährungssicherheit - die Botschaften von knappen Ressourcen häufen sich. Und dies in einer Welt mit wachsender Bevölkerung, zahllosen Armen und stolzen Nationen, die auch ihren Platz an der Sonne fordern. Ihr Recht auf Entwicklung kann man im Zeitalter der Globalisierung nicht bestreiten - und dennoch ist bereits jetzt die Biosphäre überfordert. Die Inder wollen Straßen und die Chinesen mehr Öl: Der Kampf um die knappe Natur wird die Krisen des 21. Jahrhunderts mitbestimmen. Ressourcenkonflikte, große und kleine, sind oft der unsichtbare Faktor hinter Chaos und Gewalt. Wo jedoch der Kuchen immer kleiner, der Hunger immer größer und die Gäste immer zahlreicher werden, da ist es höchste Zeit, nach Wegen einer gerechteren Verteilung von Ressourcen zu suchen. Dieses Buch, verfaßt von Fachleuten des international renommierten Wuppertal Instituts, liefert eine Analyse der Konfliktlagen. Es entwirft überdies Perspektiven einer Politik der Ressourcengerechtigkeit und umreißt die Konturen einer globalen Umwelt- und Wirtschaftspolitik, die gleichermaßen der Natur wie den Menschen verpflichtet ist. Ein wichtiges Informationswerk und ein Kompass für alle, die nach Wegen zu einer zukunftsfähigen Weltgesellschaft suchen
Zukunftsfähiges Deutschland in einer globalisierten Welt : ein Anstoss zur gesellschaftlichen Debatte ; eine Studie des Wuppertal Instituts für Klima, Umwelt, Energie ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in German and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Die Vielzahl der angesprochenen Themen und Probleme zeigt, dass es nicht genügt, hier und da ein paar Stellschrauben zu verändern. Viele Entwicklungen sind miteinander verzahnt und lassen sich nur in Verbindung mit der Neuausrichtung anderer Prozesse korrigieren: Arbeitsmarkt und Umweltschutz, Klimawandel und Ökonomie, Teilhabe und Migration, Demografie und Ressourcenpolitik. Vor dem Hintergrund der zahlreichen Handlungsfelder braucht die Verständigung über Richtung und Ziel künftiger Politik eine breite gesellschaftliche Basis. Unstrittig dürfte die Erkenntnis sein, dass im Interesse von Mensch und Natur ein Kurswechsel überfällig ist. Die Herausgeber möchten mit der Studie daher auch einen Anstoß für eine breite gesellschaftlichen Diskussion geben.(Quelle: bpb / Internet)
