Companion to Environmental Studies Paperback

Edited by Noel Castree, Mike (Kings College London, UK) Hulme, James D. Proctor

Description

Companion to Environmental Studies presents a comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the key issues, debates, concepts, approaches and questions that together define environmental studies today.

The intellectually wide-ranging volume covers approaches in environmental science all the way through to humanistic and post-natural perspectives on the biophysical world.

Though many academic disciplines have incorporated studying the environment as part of their curriculum, only in recent years has it become central to the social sciences and humanities rather than mainly the geosciences. `The environment' is now a keyword in everything from fisheries science to international relations to philosophical ethics to cultural studies.

The Companion brings these subject areas, and their distinctive perspectives and contributions, together in one accessible volume.

Over 150 short chapters written by leading international experts provide concise, authoritative and easy-to-use summaries of all the major and emerging topics dominating the field, while the seven part introductions situate and provide context for section entries.

A gateway to deeper understanding is provided via further reading and links to online resources. Companion to Environmental Studies offers an essential one-stop reference to university students, academics, policy makers and others keenly interested in `the environmental question', the answer to which will define the coming century.
