  1. Note from Ahmed Hussen, author of Principles of Environmental Economics and Sustainability

    This new edition of the textbook is motivated by the same objective as the two editions before it. It is written to present the economic and ecological principles essential for a clear understanding of complex contemporary environmental issues and policy considerations. However, the third edition introduces several additional features, including four new chapters. These new chapters cover the following topics: the science, economics, and public policy debate of global climate change; biodiversity conservation; alternative monetary and physical indicators of sustainability; and the business cases for sustainability. In addition, a study-guide is now available to be used as a companion of the 3rd edition. The study-guide is designed in a ‘review and discussion questions’ format and the questions are organized in a systematic manner so that they can effectively pinpoint to the students the key conceptual, theoretical and practical lessons addressed in each chapter of the book.

This book describes the current and exciting developments in this area, for both young people and adults, by leaders in their field. It is in the community where interventions with those who have offended are all ultimately tested... Read more...

    Security, risk and resilience
    By Sandra Walklate and Gabe Mythen

    Over the last fifteen years there has been a significant growth in literature dealing with terrorism. Nevertheless, scholars within mainstream criminology have only recently begun to grapple with the problem of terrorism in a sustained fashion.

    A how-to guide for teaching about gender, race, class and sexuality
    Edited by Rebecca M. Hayes, Kate Luther and Susan Caringella

  10. Routledge Handbook of Global Citizenship Studies

    Edited by Engin F. Isin and Peter Nyers

    Citizenship studies is at a crucial moment of globalizing as a field. What used to be mainly a European, North American, and Australian field has now expanded to major contributions featuring scholarship from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Routledge Handbook of Global Citizenship Studies takes into account this globalizing moment. At the same time, it considers how the global perspective exposes the strains and discords in the concept of ‘citizenship’ as it is understood today... Read more...
