About the Author:

Tony Fitzpatrick is a reader in the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham and the author of a number of books on issues of welfare and the environment.

Review:

Tony Fitzpatrick has assembled a very thoughtful collection of chapters which examine the various ways in which social and environmental concerns intersect with one another. At a very general level, sustainability offers a neat and tidy way to reconcile them. But as this book usefully reveals, in practice they interact in ways that are far from straightforward. Professor Andrew Jordan, School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia

The intersection of social policy and environmental policy is strategically and morally vital yet has remained a strangely neglected area. No longer. This comprehensive book covers real world challenges, sustainable ethics, a host of applied policy issues, and some bigger questions about the possibility of a green welfare state. Ian Gough, Emeritus Professor, University of Bath
