It is a dynamic tribute which extends his work to address the problems that the human race will face in the twenty-first century." "The book shows how Georgescu-Roegen constructed nothing less than an almost complete theoretical alternative to neoclassical economics. Although best-known for his later work as an environmentalist and his work on energy and material transformation, Georgescu-Roegen also made seminal contributions to the economic theory of utility and production and is considered to be one of the founders of modern mathematical economics." "This celebration of the contributions made by Georgescu-Roegen will be of interest to environmental and natural resource economists, as well as to social and economic theorists."--BOOK JACKET." ;
