Translated from the German by Weisz,(A). The author establishes the foundations of an original and far-reaching analysis of modern politics, examining the motivation for ecological concern. This book created a massive public debate when first published in Germany.
This is an extremely complex debate written by a leading German sociologist. The issues are thought-provoking...those who take their debate on the theory of society should find this book fascinating. (TEG News) "Wide-ranging...it is likely to appeal to social scientists with a broad range of specialisms, and is novel in the connections it makes between seemingly disparate issues.... Beck's prose can be almost poetic in places, his passion about his subject is inspiring and his work indicates many directions for future research. Ecological Politics in an Age of Risk is a challenging and enjoyable book which deserves to be read widely." (British Journal of Sociology) "An interesting book offering a stimulating argument." (Political Studies) "A "must-read" for those interested in national or international environmental isues, specifically hazardous waste management." (Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management) "Stimulating and provocative." (Environmental Values)
