About the Author

Michael Mayerfeld Bell is Professor of Community and Environmental Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For his day job, he is principally an environmental sociologist and a social theorist, focusing on dialogics, the sociology of nature, and social justice. These concerns for the world have led him to studies of agroecology, the body, community, consumption, culture, development, food, democracy, economic sociology, gender, inequality, participation, place, politics, rurality, the sociology of music, and more. He is also a part-time composer of grassroots and classical music, and a mandolinist, guitarist, and singer.


"The book strikes such a nice balance on so many levels. This is not only the best environmental sociology text I've used, but it's is the best text - of any type - I've used in college-level teaching. I really look forward to the fourth edition."--Cliff Brown
"The way that you presented the information, as a blend of history, statistics, academic research, and personal anecdotes was very intriguing and I had a hard time putting the book down once I started reading it."--Student
