Reviews

'This book's greatest strength is in its diversity: A range of topics are covered with both research and practice perspectives, and the case studies are helpful in illustrating the concepts presented. This book is also timely in that sustainable development is increasingly becoming a popular topic in both academic and practitioner discourses on lasting social change.' - Kelly S. Gillis, International Journal of Communication 8 (2014)
