Twenty Lessons in Environmental Sociology

Third Edition

Kenneth A. Gould and Tammy L. Lewis

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.

New to this Edition:

  • Completely new lessons on "Theories in Environmental Sociology" (Lesson 2), "The Sociology of Environmental Health" (Lesson 11), and "Environmental Social Movements" (Lesson 18), written by new contributors
  • A brand-new lesson on "Climate Change" (Lesson 15), written by a new contributor
  • A greater focus on issues of gender inequality and Indigenous peoples throughout
  • Updated data and examples in lessons
  • An invitation from the authors for students to post photos that represent the book's themes on social media, using hashtags linked to the book
