Product Description


"Environmental policies, however good the science on whichthey are based, will ultimately fail unless they are socially just. Nor can social policymakers ignore the major environmental issues of our time - without a healthy environment social problems can only get worse not better. This pioneering book is essential reading for anybody who is interested in the environment or in social policy and is a marvellous resource for those who are teaching courses in this critically important interdisciplinary subject." - Professor John H. Lawton CBE, FRS (Director, NERC Centre for Population Biology; Chairman RSPB; Former member of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution) "This is a book which breaks new ground, challenging conventionally limited approaches to social policy. It includes all the key environmental changes that have a social impact and discusses them in a cogent and logical fashion. There will be many students who will welcome the bridging of the gap between social and environmental studies in this important and easily accessible text." - Professor Jonathan Bradshaw (Director, Institute of Research in the Social Sciences, University of York) "This is an important book which should revitalise social policy. It gives real analytic and empirical substance to the call for a 'new' social policy which breaks the domains of the traditional core topics of the field of study. It tackles issues of real political importance in a manner which clearly demonstrates the utility of developing social policy perspectives in an area hitherto dominated by the natural sciences." - Roger Burrows (Assistant Director, Centre for Housing Policy, University of York) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
