            Ecological Economics for the Anthropocene provides an urgently needed alternative to the long-dominant neoclassical economic paradigm of the free market, which has focused myopically--even fatally--on the boundless production and consumption of goods and services without heed to ...environmental consequences. The emerging paradigm for ecological economics championed in this new book recenters economics on the recognition of the fundamental physical and biological conditions for living on the Earth, requiring a deep reconfiguration of the goals of the economy, how we understand the fundamentals of human prosperity, and, ultimately, how we assess humanity's place in the community of beings.

            The Handbook of Applied Systems Science is organized around both methodological approaches in systems science, and the substantive topic to which these approaches have been applied. The volume begins with an essay that introduces three system science methods: agent-based modeling..., system dynamics, and network analysis. The remainder of the volume is organized around three broad topics: (1) health and human development, (2) environment and sustainability, and (3) communities and social change. Each section begins with a brief introductory essay, and includes nine chapters that demonstrate the application of system science methods to address research questions in these areas. This handbook will be useful for work in Public Health, Sociology, Criminal Justice, Social Work, Political Science, Environmental Studies, Urban Studies, and Psychology.

            This book explains how the methodology of systems analysis and mathematical methods of control theory (including game theory and graph theory) can be applied to the area of organizational management. The theory presented extends the traditional approach of management science by i...ntroducing the optimization and game-theoretical tools for systematic accounting of the special nature of a human being as a control object. The authors use formal methods to construct robust and efficient decision-making procedures.
