The first book in the field to give a comprehensive overview of environmental sociology and feminism, which not only focuses on ecofeminism, but also the different feminist positions and debates which are beginning to emerge.

Tackles some of the major debates in contemporary society giving a clear perspective on and overview of the key issues and research. The issues surrounding the relationship between environment and society challenge the basic assumptions of sociological theory. Starts with basic concepts of nature-society relationships, covers special fields of human-nature-interaction: work and consumption and ends by describing environmental political strategies.

Synopsis:

This book aims to give a comprehensive overview of the concepts, theories and results of environmental sociology from a feminist perspective. Environmental sociology is a relatively new field of sociological resarch. The issues surrounding the relationship between the environment and society challenge the basic assumptions of sociological theory and they are more or less marginalized by the main stream of sociological research. The feminist perspectives on environment and society are even more marginalized. They have been dominated by ecofeminism but in the discourse on sustainable development different positions and debates are beginning to emerge. The book portrays the feminist perspectives on environment and society and gives an overview of the feminist critique of environmental sociology. It starts with an overview of basic concepts of the nature-society-relationships, goes further with special fields of human-nature-interaction: work and consumption, and the portrayal of environmental political strategies, and ends with the outline of an integrating approach: gender-sensitive socio-ecological research..
