Overview

This is a comprehensive yet accessible text that exposes students to the interaction between society and the environment. Each chapter opens with a stimulating case example or scenario that helps students grasp this interaction, while a "Focus on the U.S." feature helps students relate global environmental issues to everyday life in the United States. Students learn how to use social theories to better understand environmental issues, both at home and internationally.
