Modern Environmentalism Summary

Modern Environmentalism: An Introduction by David Pepper

Modern Environmentalism presents a comprehensive introduction to environmentalism, the origins of its main beliefs and ideas, and how these relate to modern environmental ideologies. Providing a historical overview of the development of attitudes to nature and the environment in society, the book examines key environmentalist ideas, influences and movements. Science's role in mediating our view of nature is emphasised throughout. This entirely new account draws on the explosion of writing on socio-environment relations since Pepper's earlier work, The Roots of Modern Environmentalism.

Modern Environmentalism Reviews

Importantly too, it is written in a style which is attractive and accessible, which will appeal to the jaded minds of students who are overfed with with indigestible academic jargon M Parnell, Napier University
