by Sulak Sivaraksa - £10.00  Souvenir Press Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780285638983 | ISBN 10: 028563898x

"Sulak Sivaraksa and I share a conviction that if we are to solve human problems, economic and technological development must be accompanied by an inner spiritual growth."
(H.H. the Dalai Lama)
The Wisdom of Sustainability continues E. F. Schumacher’s groundbreaking work on Buddhist economics in Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered. Emphasizing small-scale, indigenous, sustainable alternatives to globalization, Sulak offers hope and alternatives for restructuring our economies based on Buddhist principles and personal development.
 
Sulak Sivaraksa is one of Asia’s leading social thinkers and activists. His wide-ranging work includes founding the International Network of Engaged Buddhists and dozens of other educational and political grassroots organizations, and authoring more than 100 books in Thai and English, including Seeds of Peace: A Buddhist Vision for Renewing Society. He was nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize and, in 1995, received the Right Livelihood Award, known as the alternative Nobel Peace Prize.
