  • Signed chapters, a well-known General Editor, and a distinguished Editorial Board all serve to ensure quality of content.
  • Volume 1 focuses on key perspectives on environmental leadership (including philosophical, political, governmental, business, etc.) while Volume 2 examines key environmental leadership challenges (climate change, environmental justice, environment and conflict, endangered species and biodiversity, sustainable development, renewable and alternative energy, hazardous waste, etc.).
  • A concluding chapter provides thoughts on Next Generation Environmental Leaders.
  • By focusing on 100 key topics, the handbook provides students with greater depth of discussion than typically found in an encyclopedia entry but not as much jargon, detail or density as a journal article.  The handbook is composed of "mini-chapters" of 6,000-7,000 words each, as compared to typical encyclopedia entries of 500-3,000 words or research handbook chapters that often average 10,000-12,000 words or more.
  • Chapters are written in language and style that is broadly accessible, and each is followed by a brief bibliography and further readings and, where applicable, cross-references to related chapters.
  • A general bibliography, detailed index, and an online version of the work enhance accessibility for today's student audience.
