Unlike any other introductory environmental science text, Robert Kaufmann and Cutler Cleveland's Environmental Science takes a fresh approach to the subject by weaving themes of energy and materials, economic systems, and policy throughout the entire text. A story of real science is simply told through examples of cutting-edge content, real-world applications, and a distinctive conceptual illustration program.
