In doing so, it provides an antidote to the recent dominance of abstract theoretical disputes in sociological work on nature and the environment.Dividing the authors first-hand research studies into three categories -- on cultures of movement, on environment, law and public policy, and on cultures of knowing and proving -- this text uses case studies, interviews, focus-group techniques and observational analyses to explore the development of environmentalism and the environmental movement.

The analyses enable the reader to understand how environmental disputes are contested, perpetuated and resolved. The cases are carefully documented with extensive use of original materials. Drawing on the substantive findings in the empirical chapters, the book concludes with an original sociological treatment of the challenges that will face attempts to live sustainably.

It is essential reading for students and academics in sociology, social anthropology, social geography and cultural studies.
