Edward Elgar Pub.,
Pub. Date:
Nature protection has been propelled primarily by national non-governmental organizations and networks rather than national governments, state van Koppen (Wageningen U., the Netherlands) and Markham (U. of North Carolina at Greensboro). They provide a conceptual framework for a collaborative analysis by Western sociologists, introducing definitions of 'nature'; organizational goals; structures; strategies; role in civil society; and theories/social movements accounting for the motivational bases of environmental activism. Contributors present case studies from England, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and the U.S. in the biogeographical, demographic, cultural, economic, and political contexts of these nations. The editors summarize common themes and differences in these studies, and challenges posed by a new 'green wave' of concerns including climate change. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
