520    Today, the word is nearly ubiquitous: seeming to have come
       out of nowhere to dominate the discussion, from 
       permaculture to renewable energy to the local food 
       movement, the ideas that underlie and define 
       sustainability can be traced back several centuries. In 
       this illuminating and entertaining history, Jeremy L. 
       Caradonna traces its origins to the emergence of planned 
       yield forestry in the late 17th and 18th centuries, 
       through the challenges of the Industrial Revolution in the
       19th, the birth of the environmental movement in the 20th,
       and finally the emergence of a concrete effort to create a
       society that is stable, prosperous, ecologically minded, 
       and forward looking. While sustainability draws upon ideas
       of social justice, ecological economics, and environmental
       conservation, it is more than the sum of its parts. 
       Caradonna's book broadens our understanding of what the 
       term means, showing how it progressed from a relatively 
       marginal concept to an ideal that dominates lifestyle 
       choices, government and corporate strategies, and even 
       national and international policy.--From publisher
