UNDER RECONSTRUCTION -- Our new beautifully-designed, fully responsive site will soon be unveiled...


ANTHEM ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAMME

 

General Editor: Lawrence Susskind – Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

 

Our new Environment and Sustainability book publishing programme seeks to push the frontiers of scholarship while simultaneously offering prescriptive and programmatic advice to policymakers and practitioners around the world.  We have launched this initiative with the series below (each of which has an editorial board featuring scholars, practitioners and business experts keen to link theory and practice), and look forward to publishing research monographs (including Anthem Impact mid-length monographs), professional and major reference works, upper-level textbooks and general interest titles.

 

Another related project to the Anthem Environment and Sustainability programme is Anthem EnviroExperts Review. Through this online micro-reviews site, Anthem Press seeks to build a community of practice involving scientists, policy analysts and activists that is committed to creating a clearer and deeper understanding of how ecological systems – at every level – operate, and how they have been damaged by unsustainable development. We seek to publish on this site short reviews of all important books or reports in the environmental field, broadly defined.
