內容簡介

The fourth edition of Society and the Environment centers its discussion on realistic solutions to the problems that persist and examines current controversies within a socio-organizational context, shifting focus away from simply explaining what is wrong with the world around us. Introducing this "pragmatic environmentalism," Carolan discusses the complex pressures and variables that exist where ecology and society collide, with population growth, the increase in demands for food and energy, and transportation and its outsized influence on urban and community patterns. With further attention given to the social phenomena and structural dynamics driving today’s environmental problems, the book concludes with an important reflection on truly sustainable solutions and what constitutes meaningful social change.

Each chapter in this interdisciplinary text follows a three-part structure beginning with an overview of what is wrong and why. This leads into a discussion on each issue’s wide-ranging implications and, finally, a balanced consideration of realistic solutions. Featuring updated and expanded examples, discussion points, and coverage of recent developments, including the US withdrawing from the Paris Agreement, "booming" national economies and wealth distribution, growing global interest in environmental justice--with particular focus on the links between injustice and race and inequality--climate change, and renewable energy, this new edition remains an essential companion for courses on environmental sociology and sustainability.
