"Few works of social science prove enduring, much less prophetic. Allan Schnaiberg's environmental sociology, first introduced in the 1980s, is here refashioned for the challenges of twenty-first-century globalization. Schnaiberg and his coauthors reach across the generations with profound insight, demonstrated prescience, and a new vision of social justice."
-John Walton, Distinguished Research Professor, University of California
