The Essential Amory Lovins

The Essential Amory Lovins: selected writings
Edited by Amory B. Lovins, edited by Cameron M. Burns

About this book
Amory B. Lovins is one of the world's leading authorities on energy, integrative design, and their links with economy, environment, development, and security. This unique collection brings together his most important and influential writings and forms an inspiring resource for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the issues which lie at the heart of sustainability and energy challenges.

Featuring work from across his long career spanning energy, design, transport, climate, security, law, mountaineering, politics, proliferation, health, business, biotechnology, physics, and politics, the book explores the relevance of the ideas to the sustainability problems we face today-a relevance which is often [exasperatingly] evident. The collection also includes old and new personal essays on the environment and poignant letters to the editor. The selection shows Lovins's development as an expert in the complex technical fields of energy and resource policy as well as his simple love of the planet we call home.

A key "getting up to speed" text for undergraduate and graduate students on sustainability-related courses, it also arms professionals with the visions and arguments they need to drive through policy and innovation, and is an inspiring read for anyone working in or interested in the field of sustainability.

About the editors
Amory B. Lovins is co-founder, chairman, and chief scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute and a co-author of Factor Four (Earthscan, 1997).

The centennial issue of The Wall Street Journal named him among 39 people in the world most likely to change the course of business in the 1990s, and Time in 2009 called him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Cameron M. Burns is senior editor at the Rocky Mountain Institute and formerly served as corporate communications manager for the World Green Building Council. Burns has written about environmental, green architecture, energy, and sustainability issues for more than twenty years as a reporter/correspondent with various newspapers and as a contributing editor with numerous magazines.
