Globalization and Sustainable Development

A Business Perspective

by Martin Oyevaar, Diego Vazquez-Brust & Harrie van Bommel


This book achieves the almost impossible feat of combining the analysis of globalisation with that of sustainability in a manner that is both incredibly broad-ranging yet also succinct. It offers a lively, informed, accessible and compelling introduction to the greatest issues facing us all in the contemporary era. -Peter Wells, Cardiff Business School, UK.
This book provides a broad examination of the most important issue facing man and the environment: sustainability. Using a mix of theory and practice, this is a well referenced, organized and thoughtful book that allows readers to become well versed on this complex topic. -Joseph Sarkis, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, USA.
This textbook provides a fresh look at the theories and notions surrounding the role of citizens, the business community, governments and international organizations and their approach to contemporary themes such as justice, globalization, inequality, transition, value creation and community building.
