This study in global sociology argues that environmental activism today has taken on a hybrid, transnational character in reaction to the 'retreat of the state' and the political activism of transnational migrant communities. The argument is illustrated with in-depth case studies of contemporary environmental social movements in Turkey and Lithuania.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume provides an overview of environmental movements away from the western core of environmentalism. It should provide new insights to sociologists, geographers, political scientists and environmental studies researchers. -- Gabriela Kutting, Rutgers University
The environment movement has expanded dramatically around the world, penetrating all sorts of national societies. As it has gained size and strength, it has transcended its original bases in science, and found new bases in all sorts of ethnic and religious and cultural identity groups around the world. Gabriel Ignatow impressively traces this change with quantitative data and with detailed qualitative accounts. He shows convincingly the kinds of diversity within and between countries that result as environmentalism has been incorporated in and adapted to highly variable local contexts. -- John Meyer, Stanford University
