Description:

Drawing on interviews with activists and social movement theory in her analysis of the social construction of environmentalism, Tesh (political science, Yale U.) balances the views that such political- ethical activists are naive about science and that science fails to support their concerns about such hazards as pollution. She attributes this disconnect to changing "pre-environmentalist" ideas about nature informing relevant health research. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
