Despite being a relatively young sub-discipline, European environmental sociology has changed considerably in the last decades towards more interdisciplinary collaborations and problem solving. Current trends such as global environmental modernization and processes of economic, political and socio-cultural globalization, fuelled by developments of transport, environmental flows, scientific uncertainty, and information technologies, have fostered new conceptual approaches that move beyond classical sociological mind-sets toward broader attempts to connect to other disciplines. Environmental Sociology is the first book to broaden the realm of environmental sociology by forging links to other environmental disciplines, such as environmental policy, media studies, geography, ecological economics, ecological modeling, or ecological design. The book's focus on current environment-related issues in interdisciplinary developments are not only of relevance for strengthening environmental sociology but will make it a great read for upper undergraduate and graduate courses in social sciences dealing with environmental topics.
