Beyond Economic Growth: eBook from the World Bank Group

The World Bank has a good introductory book to sustainable development called Beyond Economic Growth. It is in its second edition and though the data is a little bit dated (published in 2004) the chapters are short and accessible with good illustrations. There’s a lot of informative material to help you with the Development, Development Indicators and Consumption sections of the course.  Chapters 1-6, 8-9, 12 and 15 are required reading.
