We are pleased to let you know that The Palgrave Handbook of Environmental Labour Studies edited by Nora Räthzel, Dimitris Stevis, David Uzzell is now available. We believe it will appeal to a wide variety of interests. This is a multidisciplinary collection with authors from psychology, sociology, political science, economics and many other disciplines as well as activists working on the ground, and is the first such comprehensive collection published in the field. Over forty scholars from across the globe explore the relationships between workers and nature in the context of the environmental crisis. They provide a comprehensive overview of a fast-growing field of research that bridges the social and natural sciences: environmental labour studies. environmental struggles of workers, Indigenous peoples, farmers and commoners in the Global South and North are represented. The relations within and between organisations that hinder or promote environmental strategies and forms of resistance are analysed, including the relations between local, national, and international trade unions as well as between workers’ and environmental organisations, NGOs, feminist, and community movements. This is a multidisciplinary collection with authors from psychology, sociology, political science, economics as well as activists working on the ground, and is the first such comprehensive collection published in the field.
