Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism

Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism

Edited by David Tindall, Professor, Department of Sociology, University of British Columbia, Canada, Mark C.J. Stoddart, Professor, Department of Sociology, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada and Riley E. Dunlap, Dresser Professor and Regents Professor of Sociology Emeritus, Oklahoma State University, US

This thought-provoking Handbook provides a theoretical overview of the wide variety of anti-environmentalisms and offers an integrative research agenda for future research on the topic. Probing the ways in which groups have organized to oppose environmental movements and pro-environmental policies in recent decades, it examines those involved in these countermovements and studies their motivations and support systems.

International contributors investigate the ways in which anti-environmentalism differs across regions and by the nature of the issue, alongside unique coverage of the critiques of environmental movements coming from sources that are not anti-environmental. This Handbook explores core topics in the field, including contestation over climate change, wind power, mining, forestry, food sovereignty, oil and gas pipelines and population issues. Chapters also analyse our understanding of countermovements, the effect of public opinion on environmental policy, and original empirical case studies from North America, Oceania, Europe and Asia.

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, the Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism will be a key resource for scholars and students of environmental politics and policy, environmental sociology, environmental governance and social movements.
