The eminent contributors to this volume explore the complex terrain of the interface between the social sciences and environmental research. Coming from a range of social science disciplines, they argue that environmental questions will increasingly dominate humanity in the course of the coming century. This reality holds out an opportunity, and indeed practical necessity, of stimulating important new lines of theoretical development within the social sciences as well as new forms of intellectual cooperation across them.
