Back in Print for 100th Anniversary of Schumacher's birth!
E.F. Schumacher was a key figure in the development of environmentalism in the 20th century, and has left an enduring legacy. A profound thinker who was admired by Keynes, Beveridge and Cripps, he was for many years economic adviser to the Coal Board, and later put his ideas into practice by setting up the Intermediate Technology Development Group (now Practical Action) and becoming involved with the Soil Association. He was the inspiration for many other organizations that continue to this day, including the New Economics Foundation and Schumacher College.
His views on industry, the environment, education and sustainable economics are as pertinent now as when Small is Beautiful was published.
