Brazil : a century of change( )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brazil, the largest of the Latin American nations, is fast becoming a potent international economic player as well as a regional power. This English translation of an acclaimed Brazilian anthology provides critical overviews of Brazilian life, history, and culture and insight into Brazil's development over the past century. The distinguished essayists, most of whom are Brazilian, provide expert perspectives on the social, economic, and cultural challenges that face Brazil as it seeks future directions in the age of globalization. All of the contributors connect past, present, and future Brazil. Their analyses converge on the observation that although Brazil has undergone radical changes during the past one hundred years, trenchant legacies of social and economic inequality remain to be addressed in the new century. A foreword by Jerry Dávila highlights the volumes contributions for a new, English-reading audience."--Book cover

Transitions to sustainability by François Mancebo( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book calls for the conditions of transition to sustainability: How to take into consideration new global phenomena such as and of the dimension of climate change, the depletion of natural resources, financial crises, demographic dynamics, global urbanization, migrations and mobility, while bearing in mind short-term or local place-based issues, such as social justice or quality of life? Meeting this challenge requires an inclusive approach of sustainability. It is a matter of designing a new social contract: Sustainability requires more than developing the right markets, institutions and metrics, it requires social momentum. To do so, many issues need a clear and complete answer: How to link social justice with sustainability policies? What governance tools to do so? What linkage between one decision-making level and the other? These are major issues to design sound transitions to sustainability
Brazilian perspectives on sustainable development of the Amazon region( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Amazon region has received considerable worldwide attention in recent years, from several aspects - the home that it provides to indigenous peoples; its role in mediating regional and global climates; the integrity of its ecological systems following disturbance and transformation; the biological and cultural diversity that it supports; and so on. Very often, the reports and commentaries come from outside the countries and peoples of the region, while much of the thinking about Amazonia from within is not widely known or accessible. It is within such a perspective that the present volume has been conceived and has taken form. The volume is concerned with Amazonian ecology, resource use and development, as perceived by researchers, scholars and resource managers from Brazil or who have for a long period lived and worked there. The volume comprises thirteen chapters which, as an ensemble, provide multiple insights on Amazonia - climate and hydrology, urbanization processes, biological and ecological diversity, forests and agroforestry, rehabilitation of degraded land and water areas, extractive reserves and extractivism, fisheries and aquaculture, mining, agriculture, resource management and development planning

Social costs of business enterprise by K. William Kapp( Book )

5 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Dès le début des années 1950, K. William Kapp démontre que l'entreprise privée fait assumer une partie de ses coûts sociaux et environnementaux à la société tout entière. Un discours en avance sur son temps, reçu froidement alors que l'Europe et les États-Unis s'engouffraient tout juste dans une ère de consommation de masse. Dans ce livre, devenu un classique de l'économie politique, l'auteur effectue une analyse systématique des différents coûts sociaux pour montrer qu'ils ne constituent en rien des phénomènes isolés : pollution, chômage, accidents du travail, obsolescence programmée, tous relèvent d'un même mécanisme qui tend à décharger les entreprises de leurs responsabilités. K. William Kapp propose ainsi une théorie des coûts qui remet en cause un grand nombre d'idées reçues et dessine une critique fondamentale des analyses économiques traditionnelles."
