About this book

This eleventh volume in the SAGE series on Green Society explores the on-going paradigm shift in culture and lifestyles toward promoting a sustainable environment. After years of discussion about the environment dating back to the 1960s counter-culture, the recent explosion of green initiatives has induced the general public to embrace all things green, from recycling in the home to admiring green celebrities.

This volume assesses the green cultural transformations by presenting some 150 articles of importance to students of sociology, history, political science, communications, public relations, anthropology, literature, arts and drama. Presented in A-to-Z format, the articles include appealing topics from green Hollywood to green spirituality, green art, and green restaurants. This work culminates in an outstanding reference for academic, university, and public libraries. Pedagogical elements in the frontmatter and backmatter include a reader's guide grouping related entries by broad themes and topics, a glossary of relevant terms, a resource guide to further readings (key books, journals, web sites), an appendix of primary documents, and a thorough index.

This should be a useful set of publications on a timely topic!.
