An Invitation to Environmental Sociology

An Invitation to Environmental Sociology (Paperback)

£80.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The sixth edition of An Invitation to Environmental Sociology continues to invite students to delve into this rapidly changing field. Written in a lively, engaging style, Michael Bell and new co-author Loka Ashwood cover the broad range of topics in environmental sociology with a personal passion rarely seen in sociology texts.

The book explores three different kinds of question about interactions between humans and the natural world: the material, the ideal, and the practical. To support this, the authors discuss the latest theoretical trends in environmental sociology, including metabolic rift, biopolitics, environmental flows, the Jevons paradox, disproportionality, degrowth, and participatory governance. It also develops the notion of normal environmentalism as a practical application of environmental sociology to real-world problems.

Michael Mayerfeld Bell is Professor of Community and Environmental Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For his day job, he is principally an environmental sociologist and a social theorist, focusing on dialogics, the sociology of nature, and social justice. These concerns for the world have led him to studies of agroecology, the body, community, consumption, culture, development, food, democracy, economic sociology, gender, inequality, participation, place, politics, rurality, the sociology of music, and more. He is also a part-time composer of grassroots and classical music, and a mandolinist, guitarist, and singer. Loka Ashwood is an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky in the Department of Sociology. She theorizes about democracy, the environment, and social action to pinpoint points of aggravation and openings for change. She analyzes specific corporate and regulatory structures that undergird dispossession of property and community in rural places. She works with people to explore creative pathways forward amid intense distrust and government neglect. Learn more at www.lokaashwood.com.
