The Edge Strategy
- Present environmental science and policy in a readable and informative format.
- Reach broad and influential audiences.
- Minimize time from writing to book distribution.
A common problem among books in which each chapter is written by different authors is lack of coherence or a “big picture” viewpoint. Not Edge books. Each is produced through a unique model for conceptualization, development, and distribution, and framed to reflect the reality that complex environmental issues cross disciplinary and political boundaries and thus require consideration from multiple perspectives. All authors and editors of each book collaborate through two in-person meetings and extensive editing to produce a cohesive volume that speaks effectively to a public audience. Furthermore, Edge books adhere to an ambitious publication schedule from manuscript to printing.
The result is timely and relevant books that present integrated pictures of complex environmental science and public policy dilemmas, framed without regard to disciplinary and political boundaries. These books will be marketed to the public and explicitly targeted to policymakers as well, in order to facilitate the incorporation of sound science into policy.
