More Information
This important volume presents a selection of influential articles written by leading scholars whose research is seminal in the development of environmental sociology. The contributors take the discussions of the environmental social sciences into new domains, for example genetics and ‘de-materialisation’, as well as suggesting new conceptual approaches to familiar problems, such as those of globalisation, scientific uncertainty and environmental citizenship.

This outstanding collection, which is a fully up to date companion to the title The Sociology of the Environment, published in 1995, represents a landmark in a field of academic research that is increasingly important for wider policy questions. The volume will be useful to all those interested in environmental issues.
