Resources for International Educators

Books

Allen, Graham. (2000).  Intertextuality, The New Critical Idiom.  Routledge.  New York.

Doppelt, Bob (2003). Leading Change Toward Sustainability: A Change-Management Guide for Business, Government and Civil Society. Sheffield, UK: Greenleaf Publishing.
This book is a nice how-to for taking practical steps to work within existing systems, change them, and create new ones to work toward sustainability.  Definitely a beyond-just-business focus.

Edwards, Andres R. (2005). The Sustainability Revolution: Portrait of a Paradigm Shift. Gabriola Island, Canada: New Society Publishers.
This is a clear account of the development of the movement, and introduces much of the theory and practice currently used locally and globally in respect to community as well as ecological sustainability. The book has a very useful resource section.

 

 

Fetterman, D. Et al. (1995).  Empowerment Evaluation: Knowledge and Tools for Self-Assessment and Accountability.  New York: SAGE.

Hawken, Paul; Amory Lovins and Hunter Lovins (1999). Natural Capitalism. Boston: Little, Brown and Company.
Slightly dated now, and quite business-focused, but still a useful overview.  This was a huge milestone, but a useful short version can be found here

McDonough, William and Michael Braungart (2002). Cradle to Cradle. New York: North Point Press.  
A good  place to start with the process of design that's come to be known as "cradle to cradle" eco-friendly, design that is completely in tune with natural systems is with a video of McDonough on YouTube.  The Chinese village designs at the end of this video bring the audience of the lecture to their feet, and it is easy to see why.

Quammen, D. (1996). The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinction.  Simon and Schuster.

Tilly, C. (2005). Identities, Boundaries and Social Ties. Paradigm Publishers.

Zak, P. (2008). Moral Markets: The Critical Role of Values in the Economy. Princeton University Press.
