GREENING VERMONT: The Search for a Sustainable State
About the Authors
Elizabeth Courtney began her career as a landscape architect. She served for a decade on Vermont's Environmental Board, the body that reviews large development applications in the state, and was chair of that board during many of its most contentious cases. She was executive director of the Vermont Natural Resources Council for fourteen years, was a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University, and led VNRC’s year-long Legacy Project.
Eric Zencey is a Fellow at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at the University of Vermont. He has held fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller-Bellagio Foundations, and writes regularly for the Daly News, a publication of the Center for the Advancement of the Steady State Economy. He has written three books previously:
Panama is a best-selling historical novel that is centered around the corruption scandal and subsequent political crisis involving France's bankrupt Panama Canal Company in the late 19th Century.
Virgin Forest is a collection of personal essays about how we think about and treat nature, with emphasis on the importance of history to an ecological understanding.
The Other Road to Serfdom and the Path to Sustainable Democracy, just published by the University Press of New England, is a counter argument to Friedrich Hayek’s neoconservative contention that large-scale economic planning inevitably leads to totalitarianism.
