"Costanza, Graumlich, and Steffen have assembled an amazing group of scholars from the biophysical and social sciences and the humanities; together, they take a long look back so as to take a better look forward. The resulting book offers a deep understanding of what the future has to offer--both the risks and the opportunities that face humanity."--Elinor Ostrom, Arthur F. Bentley Professor of Political Science and Co-Director of the Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University
"This important book presents the first installment of what promises to develop into a seminal study of human-environment interactions treated as a complex and dynamic system. We can profit greatly from this installment, while eagerly awaiting more to come."--Oran Young, Professor, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara
