Article/Chapter Title:Environmentalization: Origins, Processes, and Implications for Rural Social Change
Journal Title:Rural Sociology
Author(s):Buttel, Frederick H
Date of Publication:1992
Annotation:Buttel contends that institutional “environmentalization” or “greening” should be understood in the context of the larger social, political, and economic changes taking place in the last decades of the twentieth century. Focusing on Western agricultural sustainability, sustainable development in the Third World, and “the environmental symbolization of rural spaces,” he argues that greening may have ambiguous consequences for rural societies and underscores the necessity of both social and environmental justice.
