Editorial Reviews

Review

"This text is impressively comprehensive, and the treatment of the Global South is especially good. The material is sociological, engaging, and at an appropriate level for undergraduates. If I teach the course again, I would use this book."--Craig Humphrey, Pennsylvania State University

"This reader is completely situated in the discipline, which is a huge plus. Despite my course's intermediate-level status, my students are hungry to read materials that are not only descriptive and analytical, but theory based as well, and this text fits that description perfectly. I plan to adopt this book upon publication--from what I've read, it's the best environmental sociology reader out there."--Rik Scarce, Skidmore College

"I very much like the organization and contents of this reader. The balance struck in each reading makes the book appropriate for multiple levels of students. It can stand as its own text, as a supplement to another text, or as the base material from which students explore actual studies."--Wade Roberts, Colorado College

This book was required for my Environmental Sociology class. Horrid class. Would NOT recommend anyone take this class. My professor was a hippie.
