"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 groundbreaking 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 . This timely reissue offers a crucial message for the modern world struggling to balance economic growth with the human costs of globalization.
