About this series
The premise of this series is that the current environmental crisis cannot be solved by technological innovation alone and that the environmental challenges we face today are, at their root, political crises involving political values. Therefore, environmental politics and theory are of the utmost social significance. Growing public consciousness of the environmental crisis and its human and nonhuman impacts exemplified by the worldwide urgency and political activity associated with the problem and consequences of climate change make it imperative to design and achieve a sustainable and socially just society. The series collects, extends, and develops ideas from the burgeoning empirical and normative scholarship spanning many disciplines with a global perspective. It addresses the need for social change from the hegemonic consumer capitalist society in order to realize environmental sustainability and social justice.
