Descrizione articolo


As global environmental changes become increasingly evident and efforts to respond to these changes fall short of expectations, questions about the circumstances that generate environmental reforms become more pressing. Defensive Environmentalists and the Dynamics of Global Reform answers these questions through a historical analysis of two processes that have contributed to environmental reforms, one in which people become defensive environmentalists concerned about environmental problems close to home and another in which people become altruistic environmentalists intent on alleviating global problems after experiencing catastrophic events such as hurricanes, droughts and fires. These focusing events make reform more urgent and convince people to become altruistic environmentalists. Bolstered by defensive environmentalists, the altruists gain strength in environmental politics and reforms occur.


'A marvelous contribution to environment-society theory. Defensive Environmentalists and the Dynamics of Global Reform is a crowning achievement, drawing on insights garnered from Rudel's long and distinguished career.' S. R. Brechin, Syracuse University

'Countering the pessimism of much environmental scholarship, Rudel offers a compelling macro theory of global sustainability, grounded in locally motivated environmental initiatives. His thoughtful analysis of the conditions under which defensive environmentalism scales up charts a new direction for analyzing the trajectories of coupled human-natural systems.' Simone Pulver, University of California, Santa Barbara

'Rudel's book is an impressive synthesis of literature and ideas about the human-environment. It is lucidly argued and highly readable throughout and would appeal to senior undergraduates, graduates, and established scholars alike. The book would serve well as a core or companion text in courses on general environmental studies and environmental social science.' Bradley B. Walters, Mount Allison University
