About this book

The Making of Green Knowledge provides a wide ranging introduction to the politics of the environment and the development of environmental knowledge. Focusing in particular on the quest in recent years for more sustainable forms of socio-economic development, it attempts to place environmental politics within a broad historical perspective, and examines the different political strategies and cultural practices that have emerged. The Making of Green Knowledge is a uniquely personal exploration of the relationship between sustainable development, public participation, and cultural transformation. Through a highly accessible mix of theory, practical analysis and personal reflection it seeks to bring the making of green knowledge to life.

Media reviews
'The Making of Green Knowledge is vintage Jamison: a wonderful insight into the multiple layers and complexities of green politics. This well-argued text shows how environmental discourse is a mirror for contemporary society.' Maarten Hajer, author of The Politics of Environmental Discourse, Professor of Political Science, University of Amsterdam 'Andrew Jamison offers here a wise reflection on the state of global environmentalism. It is essential reading to help us work out where to go from here.' David Rothenberg, editor of The World and the World, author of Sudden Music, editor of Terra Nova, Associate professor of Philosophy, New Jersey Institute of Technology '... should be seen as required reading for all undergraduates in this field to broaden their perspectives.' British Ecological Society's Teaching Ecology Group Newsletter 'The book is a valuable source of perspectives on what Jamison refers to as the 'actual historical trajectory of environmentalism'. It does full justice to the immense complexity of the interactions between different theoretical, cultural, historical and practical forces and processes in the development of environmentalism.' Political Studies ' ... the book does a good job covering the historical and panoramic vision of ecological cultural transformation, and provides information about the diverse ideas, people, and institutions in making the green knowledge.'
