    Environmental Issues and Policy: Exploring Past, Present, and Future Socioecological Relations presents readers with a collection of essays by experts in the field exploring some of the key environmental problems, its intersections with societal processes and the resultant issues that emerge at the local, regional, and global scale.

    Readers learn about ozone depletion, water pollution, food security, environment conservation and conflict, deforestation, climate change impacts, energy security, health challenges and sustainable urban practices. Chapters also examine the role of policy in addressing these environmental problems via market reforms, engineered and design solutions, political intervention, scientific innovation, and social organization. Persistent issues are explored in retrospect to illustrate the emergence and peak of these challenges and evaluate societal responses so far to address them.

    A fresh addition to literature that explores the connection between environment and society, Environmental Issues and Policy is an illuminating resource for courses in environmental studies, especially those that explore the discipline’s relationship with public policy. The volume is also useful for the general public and policy makers who seek knowledge on key environmental topics.
