This major anthology is the first to apply a fully interdisciplinary approach to environmental studies. A comprehensive guide to environmental literacy, the book demonstrates how the sciences, social sciences, and humanities all contribute to understanding our interrelationships with the natural world. Though not specialized, Environment is a book that even specialists can learn from. Ten innovative case studies--climate shock, species endangerment, nuclear power, biotechnology, sustainable development, deforestation, environmental security, globalization, wilderness, and the urban environment--are followed by readings from specific disciplines. These can be integrated with the case studies to shape individual interests and teaching strategies. The volume presents an imaginative array of texts, from scientific papers to poetry, legal decisions to historical accounts, personal essays to economic analysis. Taken together, these selections provide a balanced, authoritative, and up-to-date treatment of key issues in environmental studies.

"This superb collection contains a comprehensive yet highly selective set of environmental writings. The book contains many classics as well as more recent pieces that are destined to become classics. "Environment" crosses over among environmental literature, science, technology and policy . . . often in the same section and sometimes within individual articles. Highly recommended for any student or scholar of environmental studies."--Professor Andrew Friedland, Dartmouth Environmental Studies Program
