520    Jeffrey D. Sachs is one of the world's most perceptive and
       original analysts of global development. In this major new
       work he presents a compelling and practical framework for 
       how global citizens can use a holistic way forward to 
       address the seemingly intractable worldwide problems of 
       persistent extreme poverty, environmental degradation, and
       political-economic injustice: sustainable development. 
       Sachs offers readers, students, activists, 
       environmentalists, and policy makers the tools, metrics, 
       and practical pathways they need to achieve Sustainable 
       Development Goals. Far more than a rhetorical exercise, 
       this book is designed to inform, inspire, and spur action.
       Based on Sachs's twelve years as director of the Earth 
       Institute at Columbia University, his thirteen years 
       advising the United Nations secretary-general on the 
       Millennium Development Goals, and his recent presentation 
       of these ideas in a popular online course, The Age of 
       Sustainable Development is a landmark publication and 
       clarion call for all who care about our planet and global
