The first major study of the immensely influential political economist Barbara Ward, drawing heavily on her own writings. Barbara Ward was one of the world's most outstanding writers and speakers on environment and development issues. She was a pioneer of the international movement which led from resource scarcity and protecting the environment to climate change and planetary survival. 'Our visionary perspective is the true realism - and that is what we must pursue', she wrote. A close ally and confidant of world politicians such as Willy Brandt, Robert McNamara, and JFK, this book brings all Ward's genius and qualities to life - her eloquence, her intellect, her charm and her unique ability to analyse the challenges of development in the contemporary world.
