In Envisioning Sustainability Planet Drum Foundation Founder Peter Berg provides us with a collection of the important essays that helped define the bioregional movement and established Berg as an icon in the environmental community. This collection, which spans three decades of Berg's life work, combines the candor, humor and vision that helped shape the sustainability revolution. From his home environment of San Francisco, to his work in Japan and Ecuador, Berg speaks with authority on the bioregional aspects of sustainability as cities around the world adopt and execute his Green City model. 'Reader, you hold an important book in your hands. It's a forty-year compendium of some of the profoundest ecosocial thinking to date concerning what are misnomered, meagerly, environmental problems. Here you will find the outlines of lifeways that could return our species to diverse, place-located, long haul biotic flourishing.' Stephanie Mills, author of Tough Little Beauties and Whatever Happened to Ecology? 'It's rare and wonderful to be able to see an idea grow from the cogitations of your friends to part of the framework of grand state policy. But such is the trajectory of bioregionalism, originally cooked up by cultural innovator and activist Peter Berg and conservation biologist Ray Dasmann, and now an accepted phrase in California state government agencies.' Ernest Callenbach, author of Ecotopia, Ecotopia Emerging, Ecology: A Pocket Guide, and Bring Back the Buffalo! A Sustainable Future for America's Great Plains
