Hailed as an âeco-bibleâ by Time magazine, E.F. Schumacherâs riveting, richly researched statement on sustainability has become more relevant and vital with each year since its initial groundbreaking publication during the 1973 energy crisis. A landmark statement against âbigger is betterâ industrialism, Schumacherâs Small Is Beautiful paved the way for twenty-first century books on environmentalism and economics, like Jeffrey Sachsâs The End of Poverty, Paul Hawkenâs Natural Capitalism, Mohammad Yunisâs Banker to the Poor, and Bill McKibbenâs Deep Economy. This timely reissue offers a crucial message for the modern world struggling to balance economic growth with the human costs of globalization.
