Editors: Helen Kopnina (Amsterdam Institute of Advanced Labour Studies, University of Amsterdam), Hans Keune (University of Antwerp, Faculty of Political and Social Sciences, Department of Sociology, Centre for Health and Enviornment, Belgium)
Book Description:
In this new book the authors examine the contribution of social scientists to the topics of health and environment. They present diverse perspectives on classical and contemporary debates by focusing on social scientific framing of environment and health, as well as on the potential contribution of social science to problem solving strategies in these fields. They trace environment and health debates to the classical scholars and examine the evolution of contemporary academic disciplines concerned with health and environment. Finally, they address current complex relationships between human health and environmental problems, and between human and non-human interests.
