n Journal of Public Administration - The Quest for Sustainable Development, W. Fox & E. Van Rooyen (Eds.) : book review

Volume 40, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0036-0767



The editors set themselves the task of clarifying the popular, but controversial topic of sustainable development. Experts representing various disciplines and areas of speciality were requested to focus on different aspects of the topic. This resulted in a discussion on sustainable development from an economic, a planning, an administrative and a managerial point of view. This wide spectrum allowed the editors to identify crucial issues and register a possible agenda for more and thorough research into each one of the foci dealt with in a chapter. The nature of sustainable development requires a comprehensive approach. Therefore, it is to be expected that the issues dealt with, cover topics as wide apart as HIV / Aids and physical planning as well as closely related topics such as indigenous knowledge systems and community participation to foster a climate conducive to sustainable development.
