Overview

The author's focus is not on the science of the environment, but rather on the science of society. Unless we appreciate how society works, and in particular how nations operate and the constraints within which they conduct their business, we cannot realistically tackle the fundamental issues of sustainable development.

This second edition provides an excellent update for students of all disciplines of social science, environmental science, and environmental studies.
