Shows how society interacts with nature, points out the flaws in the philosophy and politics of the green movement, and assesses forms of society and politics appropriate to sustainability.
'Its unusual perspective makes this an interesting text. It does more than just catalogue ideas and events, it tries to analyse these so that key strands can be extracted.' TEG News 'Martell has pulled off a difficult trick: he has written a book that will both inform students and engage professional scholars, and he has secured himself a place in future discussions regarding the relationship between environment and society.' The Sociological review 'In aiming to provide a theoretically informed undergraduate text on contemporary green issues, the book goes some way to filling a gap where the level of support material is widely regarded as insufficient.' Antipode "Ecology and Society makes an important contribution to this emerging literature by providing an introduction to green ideas for students of social science. This book will appeal to both students and researchers. It is written in an accessible style, provides useful summaries of key literature and suggests further reading at the end of each chapter ... a useful contribution to the literature on environment-society relations and a valuable addition to student reading lists.'
