The impact of humans on the natural environment is one of the most pressing issues of the Twenty-First Century. Key topics of concern include mounting natural resource pressures, accelerating environmental degradation, and the rising frequency and intensity of disasters. Governmental and non-governmental actors have responded to these challenges through increasing environmental action and advocacy, expanding the scope of environmental policy and governance, and encouraging the development of the so-called “green economy.” This book series encompasses a range of social science research, aiming to unify perspectives and advance scholarship. Books in the series focus on cutting-edge global issues at the nexus of society and the environment.
The series is being edited by Dana R. Fisher (University of Maryland), Lori Peek (University of Colorado), and Evan Schofer (UC-Irvine).
If you are interested in submitting a book for the Series, please send a proposal containing a brief description of the content and focus of the book, a table of contents or chapter outline, literature review and market analysis, and professional information about the author, including previous publications to firstname.lastname@example.org For more information, please refer to CUP’s manuscript submission guidelines at http://cup.columbia.edu/manuscript-submissions
