by Ian DrummondThe Condition of Sustainability progresses both the theory and practice of this important concept, by incorporating key elements of contemporary social theory into sustainability debates, both at a conceptual and practical level. The authors begin by considering why most current approaches to sustainable development have proved inadequate, arguing that most approaches concentrate on the definition and policing of various sustainability limits, and a more dynamic conception is necessary. Case study material, used for illustration and analysis throughout the book, focuses on the food system, particularly the sugar industry in Australia and Barbados - sugar being the most widely produced agricultural commodity in the world and widely associated with a range of environmental and social impacts which can be regarded as unsustainable.
