Foundations of Socio-Environmental Research : Legacy Readings with Commentaries, Hardback Book



This anthology convenes 53 foundational readings that showcase the rich history of socio-environmental research from the late 1700s onwards.

The introduction orients readers to the topic and how it has evolved and describes how to best use the book.

The original readings are organised into six sections, documenting the emergence of socio-environmental research, first as a shared concern and then as a topic of specific interest to anthropology and geography; economics, sociology and political science; ecology; ethics, religious studies, and history; and technology, energy, and materials.

A noted scholar introduces each section, putting the readings into historical and intellectual context.

The conclusion links the legacy readings to contemporary approaches to socio-environmental research and discusses how these links can enrich the reader's understanding and work.

Invaluable to students, instructors and researchers alike, this canonical reference illuminates underappreciated linkages across research domains and creates a shared basis for dialogue and collaboration.
