This book by leading researchers presents a critical review of debates in environmental social science over the past decade.
Three broad areas are covered in ten chapters:
- the problems of scientific uncertainty and its role in shaping environmental policy and decisions;
- the development of institutional frameworks for governing natural resources;
- and the link between economic and technological change and the environment.
The book begins with examining how perspectives across environmental social science have shifted over the past decade and look forward to the emergence of new research agendas. This book is essential reading for all students and scholars in social sciences and the environment.
