    Review quote
    "Clear and compelling...Jackson provides both the conceptual framework and convincing illustration of the new evironmental paradigm of industrial production. In ten years' time all managers will be thinking this way."-Michael Jacobs, CSEC, Lancaster "A very impressive and potentially influential book: imaginative yet rooted in sound common sense. Successfully drawing together the essential themes in the current environmental debate, this book deserves to be very widely read."-Roland Clift, University of Surrey "This is a very good book. It is a logical argument that draws its evidence from a number of quite disparate academic disciplines, marshals digestible facts in a convincing manner, and presents complex points to the nonspecialist reader without patronizing or indeed preaching."-" Tourism Analysis ..." inspirational ... A major strength of the text is integration of the material economy with the ecosystem and thermodynamic system ... [T]he author has written a pioneering book fusing environmental economic relationships in a new and needed approach for economic and industrial geography ... I plan to use the textbook as a required book for my industrial geography course."-John Benhart, "Journal of Cultural Geography
