Nothing less than a full-scale assault on conventional economic wisdom. Newsweek "One the 100 most influential books published since World War II The Times Literary Supplement "Hailed as an eco-bible by Time" magazine, E.F. Schumacher s riveting, richly researched statement on sustainability has become more relevant and vital with each year since its initial ground breaking publication during the 1973 energy crisis. A landmark statement against bigger is better industrialism, Schumacher s Small Is Beautiful "paved the way for twenty-first century books on environmentalism and economics, like Jeffrey Sachs s The End of Poverty," Paul Hawken s Natural Capitalism," Mohammad Yunis s Banker to the Poor," and Bill McKibben s Deep Economy."
