Editorially integrated but written from multi-disciplinary perspectives, The Handbook of Environment and Society is organised in seven sections:
- Environmental thought: past and present
- Valuing the environment
- Knowledges and knowing
- Political economy of environmental change
- Environmental technologies
- Redesigning natures
- Institutions and policies for influencing the environment
Key themes include: locations where the environment-society relation is most acute: where, for example, there are few natural resources or where industrialization is unregulated; the discussion of these issues at different scales: local, regional, national, and global; the cost of damage to resources; and the relation between principal actors in the environment-society nexus.
Aimed at an international audience of academics, research students, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, The Handbook on Environment and Society presents readers in social science and natural science with a manual of the past, present and future of environment-society links.
"Fifty-eight international (e.g., from Australia, England, India, Germany, Sweden, US) physical, biological, environmental, and social scientists have contributed authoritatively insightful and instructive perspectives and assessments of the myriad environment-society links confronting the contemporary milieu."
