Ecological economics bibliography – updated 16/11/15

Here are some useful references and links – this is by no means a comprehensive list (indeed some choices might be seen as idiosyncratic), but it does give some flavour of the significant and growing body of serious work on steady state economics and related topics.  It goes rather beyond ecological economics, including material that is relevant to rethink the relationship between economy, society and ecosystem.  Note that much of this work actually questions (as we do) the isolation of economics from other disciplines and its domination of other areas of life and as such ventures into other spheres artificially divided by the dominant system into ‘economy’, ‘society’, ‘politics’ and ‘environment’.
