Politics, Science, and the Environment

This series addresses the increasingly complex questions of how societies come to understand, confront, and cope with both the sources and the manifestations of present and potential environmental threats. Works in the series may focus on matters political, scientific, technical, social, or economic. What they share is attention to the intertwined roles of politics, science, and technology in the recognition, framing, analysis, and management of environmentally related contemporary issues, and a manifest relevance to the increasingly difficult problems of identifying and forging environmentally sound public policy. As our understanding of environmental threats deepens and broadens, it is increasingly clear that many environmental issues cannot be simply understood, analyzed, or acted upon. The multifaceted relationships between human beings, social and political institutions, and the physical environment in which they are situated extend across disciplinary as well as geopolitical confines, and cannot be analyzed or resolved in isolation.
