Because international trade drives today's political, economic, and financial infrastructures, its momentum has largely drowned out warnings about the limited resources of the planet. This book raises public awareness about these limited resources with writings by leading scholars that provide an up-to-date and forceful analysis of how the global community can move toward a sustainable and equitable world. Taking a multicultural and multidisciplinary approach, Sharing the Planet will be essential reading for scholars and concerned citizens.
