Overview

The third edition of John Hannigan’s classic undergraduate text has been fully updated and revised to highlight contemporary trends and controversies within global environmental sociology. Environmental Sociology offers a distinctive, balanced treatment of environmental issues, reconciling Hannigan’s much-cited model of the social construction of environmental problems and controversies with an environmental justice perspective that stresses inequality and toxic threats to local communities.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"John Hannigan’s Environmental Sociology is a classic in environmental literature.  It provides invaluable lens into the social and cultural roots of the environmental issues of our day, challenging our worldviews about who we are as humans, how we relate to each other and how we understand the world of which we are a part.  Hannigan’s text captures the global urgency of the human impact on the environment and teaches us how environmental issues hold import for the way we structure our society.  Environmental Sociology deserves a prominent place in any library that covers the environmental issues we care about." - Andrew J. Hoffman, Ross School of Business/School of Natural Resources & Environment, University of Michigan

"The challenges of the century will come from the interaction of humankind with its environment. Hence the crucial importance of sociological reflections about the impact of society on the environment and the influence of the environment on human conduct. Hannigan’s new edition of Environmental Sociology provides a distinctive, balanced and forward looking discussion of major environmental issues from a social science perspective."

Nico Stehr, Karl Mannheim Professor, Zeppelin University, Germany

Professor Hannigan again provides a fresh view of the social constructivist perspective as it challenges and extends understanding of society’s interactions with nature and environmental problems. This new edition of Environmental Sociology reaches skillfully into uncharted territory in ways that will instruct and inspire students new to the field.

Scott Frickel, Associate Professor of Sociology, Brown University
