"Phillip Sutton has crafted a systematic and thoroughintroduction to the social science of the environment: itsdefinition, transformation, politicization and defence. Heexpansively charts the emergence of the field and points to howglobal changes and politics will affect its future. This book willbecome a key resource for new students of environmental sociologyand a point of engagement for future discussion."

"Philip Sutton combines an excellent introduction to thesociology of the environment with an innovative approach to thefield. A stimulating and wide-ranging text."
Tim Newton, Exeter University
"Written for undergraduate students, Philip Sutton’s TheEnvironment demands no prior knowledge of sociology. Remainingfaithful to its subject matter, the book ranges freely across humanand environmental sciences. Sutton rejects the “retreat intothe present” that characterizes much contemporary sociologyand frames environmental problems in relation to very long-termprocesses of human social development. This “sociologicalintroduction” is challenging in all the right ways."
Stephen Quilley, Keele University
