-Focusing on the ecological side only, as a basis for decision-making for sustainability, simplifies reality so much that the result is distortions and leads to incomplete and narrow conclusions, say Folke, Colding, Olsson and Hahn.
The Handbook of Environment and Society focuses on the interactions between people, societies and economics, and the state of nature and the environment. It is written with a multi-disciplinary perspective and divided into the following seven sections:
- Environment thought: past and present
- Valuing the environment - Knowledge and knowing
- Political economy of environmental change
- Environmental technologies
- Redesigning natures
- Institutions and policies for influencing the environment
Overall, the book puts the emphasis on locations around the world where the environment-society relation is most acute, including places where there are few natural resources or where industrialization is unregulated. Moreover, the different chapters discuss these issues at different scales, from local and regional to national and global.
Aimed at an international audience of academics, research students, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, the new SAGE-book presents readers in both social and natural science with a manual of the past, present and future of environment-society links.
