Review

“Robbins, Hintz and Moore have taken something excellent and made it even better. It remains as comprehensive yet accessible as the first, and by adding new material about human-nature relations, the authors ensure that edition two reflects important recent developments in thinking and practice.”
Noel Castree, University of Manchester

“This masterful synthesis of environment-society scholarship brings together cutting-edge ways of thinking about nature/society entanglements with highly grounded objects of exploration--from lawns to bottled water to uranium. The dynamic and accessible writing style belies the book’s empirical and theoretical sophistication. For upper-level undergrads and lower-level graduate students of environment-society relations, this new edition remains the “go-to” text in the field.”
Kendra McSweeny, Ohio State University Columbus

"As an introductory text reflecting contemporary scholarship via plural perspectives and hybrid objects, Environment and Society continues to innovate."
Jim Proctor, Lewis & Clark College

This engaging and innovative introduction to the environment and society uses key theoretical approaches to explore familiar objects. It takes topics such as population and scarcity, commodities, environmental ethics, risks and hazards, and political economy, and then applies these to objects ranging from bottled water and tuna to trees and French fries. The second edition succeeds in maintaining its balance between theory and application, but now also offers a number of enhanced features. Substantial revisions include new chapters on e-waste, lawns, and uranium; a greater diversity of case studies; improved maps and graphics; new exercises; shorter theory chapters; refocused highlight sections on environmental solutions; and a range of online student resources at www.wiley.com/go/environmentandsociety, including a test bank, notes, suggested reading, and research links.
