Great Transition: The Promise and Lure of the Times Ahead examines the possibilities for a sustainable and desirable world.

“The road map to the future that Paul Raskin and his colleagues have presented in Great Transition is accessible, insightful, and compelling. It's unique. I've used it in all my classes.”
“…the single most important and useful read with respect to the modern dilemma and the principles/ambitions for sustainability. Great Transition is a pattern and metaphor... terrific work! Thank you!”
