About this book


This book presents a vibrant study of the rise, decline, and transformation of environmental thinking. The author’s analysis moves from the proclaimed death of environmentalism toward the emerging theory and practices of postenvironmentalism in its manifold interpretations. Building upon current transformation of the relationship between science, technology, society and the environment, the book combines a theory-informed presentation of worldwide cases and crucial events in the history of environmentalism with a journey into scholarly explorations in order to answer the crucial question: where is environmental thinking heading?

Chiara Certomà is Research Fellow at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies and External Professor in Society and Environment at the University of Pisa, Italy. She has conducted research at The Open University, UK, Ghent University, Belgium, and the Rachel Carson Center, Germany, and published in international journals on environmental theory, sustainable planning and governance.
