About this book

This comprehensive overview of the first quarter-century of American environmental sociology introduces readers to the research and theoretical perspectives in this "new" field of study. Formally established in 1976 with the formation of the American Sociological Association's Section on Environmental Sociology, the field emerged in response to widespread societal recognition of the significance of environmental problems in the 1970s and has fluorished ever since. Focusing on both built and natural environments, this volume provides overviews of key topics in both branches of the field.

?The The Handbook of Environmental Sociology delivers on its promise to give 'a reasonable comprehensive overview of the field of Environmental Sociology'. The 16 chapters of the book describe and discuss various aspects of environmental sociology related to the built as well as the natuaral environment. As stated in the Introduction, the diverse and rich field is reflected in the considerable length of the book. Obviously it cannot discuss the whole area of research, but it provides a good selection and includes literature reviews, empirical as well as theoretical chapters.?-Journal of Environmental Psychology
