about

This collection of essays examines the variety of ways in which communication scholarship and research contribute to the political mobilization and empowerment of citizens to act on environmental issues--environmental discourse and action in the largest sense. As seen here, the task of environmental empowerment involves a curious mixture of national and local politics, abstract principles and concrete actions, ethical frameworks and political expediency. The contributors to this volume provide a fascinating array of perspectives on how to go about this task and how "earthtalk" continues to shape and frame human perceptions and actions on environmental issues. This unique work will be of interest to scholars, policymakers, and students of political communication, public policy, and the environment.

Editorial Reviews

?This collection of essays explores the issue of environmental empowerment from a communication perspective. Starting from the premise that environmentalists now are facing more opposition to their efforts than they did in recent history, the authors examine the polarization that typifies so much of the current environmental rhetoric and how the extremist positions define and shift centrist policies.?-Choice
