Book Description

30 Mar 2006 0415355133 978-0415355131 2

This new edition of John Hannigan's well-known and respected text has been thoroughly revised to reflect recent conceptual and empirical advances in environmental sociology. The book offers a distinctive and even-handed treatment of environmental issues and debates, integrating European theoretical contributions such as risk society and ecological modernization with North American empirical insights and findings. Key updates include:

  • an extended discussion of how classic sociological theory relates to contemporary environmental sociology
  • a critical overview of contemporary interdisciplinary perspectives, namely co-constructionist theories of ‘socionature’
  • a focus on cultural sociologies of the environment, notably discourse analysis and social framing
  • updated coverage of the environmental justice movement and grassroots mobilizations
  • a review of the linkages between environmental sociology and the sociology of disasters
  • a brand new case history chapter on the escalating global conflict over freshwater resources.

Making a strong case for centrally incorporating power relations into a realist/constructionist model of environmental knowledge, politics and policy-making, this book includes a comparative analysis of the USA, Britain and Canada, and will prove a valuable student resource.

2.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to Read 25 Sep 2010
By Abundantgood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was on my reading list and I must say it is one of the hardest books I have ever had to read. The print was ultra fine and the lanuguage hard to digest.
