Society and Its Environment

Society and Its Environment

This book looks at the different ways in which social scientists study environmental change and environmental problems. The history and geography of the relationship between environment and society is explored, as well as the social dilemmas and cultural considerations faced when confronting environmental issues. Societies' perception of, and response to, environment and risk are examined in detail. The book also considers the causes of local and global environmental problems, together with the policies implemented to control them and how these affect, and are affected by, the interests of organisations. Society and its Environment: An Introduction is the completely revised, expanded and internationalised edition of Tellegen and Wolsink's renowned Dutch textbook. It will be recommended reading for students and teachers of Environmental Studies and Sociology courses, as well as environmental managers and policy-makers and anyone seeking an understanding of how social attitudes shape our surroundings.
