Questions and issues about and around the environment and its sustainability are dizzying in their complexity—and urgency. Consequently, environmental education has probably never been more crucial. Addressing the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of this rapidly growing subject, and its multidisciplinary corpus of scholarly literature, Environmental Education is a new title from the acclaimed Routledge series, Critical Concepts in the Environment. Edited by two of the field’s leading scholars, this new Major Works collection embraces a wide variety of methodological traditions to bring together in four volumes the foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship. The collection enables users to access—and to make sense of—the most important findings and theories that have been developed by environmental education research. It provides a synoptic view of all the key issues, current debates, and controversies.
Environmental Education is fully indexed and includes comprehensive introductions, newly written by the editors, which place the collected materials in their historical and intellectual context. It is an essential reference collection and is destined to be valued by scholars and students—as well as policy-makers and practitioners—as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
