  Environmental Social Science offers a new synthesis of environmental studies, defining the nature of human-environment interactions and providing the foundation for a new cross-disciplinary enterprise that will make critical theories and research methods accessible across the natural and social sciences. Social science theory for environmental sustainability: A practical guide makes social science theory accessible and usable to anyone interested in working toward environmental sustainability at any scale. Environmental problems are, first and foremost, people : Marc J. Stern. Decision Making for the Environment: Social and Behavioral Science Research Priorities is the result of a 2-year effort by 12 social and behavioral scientists, scholars, and practitioners. The report sets research priorities for the social and behavioral sciences as they relate to several different kinds of environmental problems. Exploring the application of the concept of sustainability in the social sciences, this book argues that environmental questions will increasingly dominate humanity in the 21st century. Implications for theoretical development and intellectual cooperation across the social sciences are examined.

social science, this book demonstrates the contributions it can make to environmental studies and to larger global problems, and thus will be of interest to social and natural scientists and to policy-makers. This book emerges as a response to the increasing need for having an integrative and foundational text on environmental social sciences to understand human-environmental dynamics at different. behavior and the social environment (HBSE) book within the context of the purposes and foundations of social work education as they have been defined by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Contributing to the intellectual project of interdisciplinary environmental social science, this book shows the possibilities social science can provide to environmental studies and to larger. Social-ecological challenges call for a far better integration of the social sciences into conservation training and practice. Environmental problems are, first and foremost, people problems. Without better understandings of the people involved, solutions are often hard to come by, regardless of expertise in biology, ecology, or other traditional conservation sciences. A good introductory environmental textbook should address environmental science from the biological, social and economic dimensions. This textbook mostly focuses on the biological and physical dimensions of environmental science and inadequately addresses the social and economic dimensions/5(7).   Environmental Social Science offers a new synthesis of environmental studies, defining the nature of human-environment interactions and providing the foundation for a new cross-disciplinary 4/5(1).
