Environment and Society : Human Perspectives on Environmental Issues, Hardback Book

Environment and Society : Human Perspectives on Environmental Issues Hardback


The sixth edition of Environment and Society continues to connect issues about human societies, ecological systems, and the environment with data and perspectives from different fields.

While the text looks at environmental issues from a primarily sociological viewpoint, it is designed for courses in Environmental Sociology and Environmental Issues in departments of Sociology, Environmental Studies, Anthropology, Political Science, and Human Geography.

Clearly defined terms and theories help familiarize students from various backgrounds with the topics at hand. Each of the chapters is significantly updated with new data, concepts, and ideas.

Chapter Three: Climate Change, Science and Diplomacy, is the most extensively revised with current natural science data and sociological insights.

It also details the factors at play in the establishment of the Paris Agreement and its potential to affect global climate change.

This edition elevates questions of environmental and climate justice in addressing the human-environment relations and concerns throughout the book.

Finally, each chapter contains embedded website links for further discussion or commentary on a topic, concludes with review and reflection questions, and suggests further readings and internet sources.
