"...As befits the topic, this beautifully packages, wonderfully illustrated, interdisciplinary resource has more than 1,200 entries written by specialists. A helpful reader's guide groups topics like agriculture, conservation and ecology, movements and regulations, politics, pollution, and society. A resource guide, chronology, glossary, and list of the UN's economic indicators complete the set."
“This superb interdisciplinary work should find a place on the shelves of every public and academic library that has the least bit of interest in environment issues—which should mean just about all.” —Booklist (Starred Review)
“Nearly 300 scholars have contributed to this survey of socio-environmental issues. The consistent aim is to emphasize not just the interrelationships between the Earth’s natural environments and human society, but the inseparability of the two. This excellent guide will serve high school, public and academic libraries.”—Lawrence Looks at Books, Gale Reference Reviews
“The editor describes this work as sitting astride the imagined boundary between society and environment, reflecting new knowledge gained through understanding the ‘intense entanglement’ of human and nonhuman spheres, and transcending old dichotomies of ‘green’ and ‘brown’ approaches to legislation, economics, and societal challenges. The 1,200 entries vary in length from one column to several pages. Current, representative biographies, including appropriate Web-based resources, compensate for the entries’ brevity.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
