9780071101967: Environmental Science (Int'l Ed)

Unlike any other introductory environmental science text, Kaufmann/Cleveland takes a fresh approach to the subject in that they intertwine social science (i.e. economic systems and policy) with the natural sciences (i.e. energy) throughout the entire text. In other words, students are going to clearly see the relevancy between the underlying causes of environmental problems and how they are affected on a daily basis.
