Contents Notes
Introduction -- On the ambiguities of greening -- Social movements and knowledge-making -- The dialectics of environmentalism -- National shades of green -- The challenge of green business -- On the dilemmas of activism -- Concluding reflections. The Making of Green Knowledge provides a wide ranging introduction to the politics of the environment and the development of environmental knowledge. Focusing in particular on the quest in recent years for more sustainable forms of socio-economic development, it attempts to place environmental politics within a broad historical perspective, and examines the different political strategies and cultural practices that have emerged. The Making of Green Knowledge is a uniquely personal exploration of the relationship between sustainable development, public participation, and cultural transformation. Through a highly accessible mix of theory, practical analysis and personal reflection it seeks to bring the making of green knowledge to life. --Publisher.
