Understanding Environmental Issues provides an excellent foundation for developing critical thinking about contemporary environmental concerns and the ways in which these are debated, represented and managed. The book should achieve its aim of stimulating students to engage with how ideas of sustainability and environmental justice can be applied both in policy and in practical actionProfessor Gordon Walker, Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University
This book is a great resource for instructors and teachers who are involved in any undergraduate environmental education course. I particularly find case study chapters very helpful. These chapters on food, waste, climate change and hazards focus on wide variety of aspects of the issues such as environmental patterns, environmental and health impacts, moral and ethical considerations.
A good introduction to the issues around. The first half of hte book is stronger than the second. The case studies do not always relate to each other.
The book is an excellent read and supplement text for tow modules one at a masters level and another at the undergraduate level. I will recommend that the masters students consider purchasing this book.
Detailed and informative.
An engaging and well-written text useful as an introduction to environmental issues and providing valuable information concerning debates relating to environmental policy debates.
Gives examples for the practical uses of GIS
This book contains relevant information and advice for students carrying out independent research projects in areas of Physical Geography that overlap with Environmental Science, and as such is valuable reading for many of our students although it is not central to our core teaching.
