Twenty Lessons in Environmental Sociology Summary

Twenty Lessons in Environmental Sociology by Kenneth A. Gould (Professor of Sociology, Professor of Sociology, Brooklyn College)

Twenty Lessons in Environmental Sociology introduces undergraduates to the topic in an innovative way. Instead of compiling articles from professional journals, this reader presents twenty classroom-tested lessons from dedicated, experienced teachers and researchers in the field. Building the collection on the model of a successful undergraduate classroom experience, the coeditors asked the contributors to choose a topic, match it with their favorite lecture, and construct a lesson to reflect the way that they teach it in the classroom. The result is an engaging and versatile volume that presents the core ideas of environmental sociology in concise, accessible chapters.

Twenty Lessons in Environmental Sociology Reviews

I built my environmental sociology syllabus around this book. Twenty Lessons provides an excellent introduction to topics studied by environmental sociologists. The critical/political economy perspectives reflect most thinking in environmental sociology today, which is not * unfortunately *
Twenty Lessons is an excellent reader for an environmental sociology course. It provides a great group of essays by distinguished scholars in the field. It is one of the top books for an undergraduate environmental sociology course out there. * Stefano B. Longo, University of Illinois, Springfield *
