Twenty Lessons in Environmental Sociology

Second 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:

  • Three brand new lessons--Lesson 9 on Energy, Lesson 12 on Food, and Lesson 15 on Climate Change and Denial
  • Updated data and examples in all lessons
  • Opening photos for each chapter
  • New Glossary/Index with key terms and definitions
  • An Ancillary Resource Center with discussion questions and other features
