This guide seeks to sort the flood of information written about environmental issues and sustainable societies in recent years and order it in some way. A total of 450 document abstracts are presented here, most of which are on books and think tank reports. These items first appeared in qFuture Surveyq (journal) and were published between 1991 and 1995. Many of these items focus on American issues; however, in most instances, both the problems and the proposed remedies may be of great relevance to other countries. The abstracts are grouped into three broad categories: (1) qEnvironmental Issues, q in which the primary focus is on a particular problem or set of problems; (2) qToward Sustainability, q where the primary focus is on a sustainable society or some key aspect of it; and (3) qPolitics and Planning, q in which the focus is on political context, environmental critics, environmentalist groups, and actions to be taken at the global, national, regional, and local levels. A total of 170 periodicals related to the environment are also identified including two dozen general-interest publications, four dozen publications with an environmental focus, and 100 specialized environmental publications such as those devoted to soil conservation, waste disposal, environmental education or environmental politics. A publisher/title index and a subject index are also included.
