The field of environmental studies integrates many disciplines and includes some of the most important applied topics of modern civilization as well as one of the oldest philosophical concerns of human beings – that of the nature of our relationship with our surroundings. Both applied and basic aspects of environmental studies require a solid foundation in anthropology, economics, history, and philosophy of the environment. Not only do we need the best ideas and information to deal successfully with our environmental problems, but also we must be aware of the cultural and historical context in which we make decisions about our environment and understand the ways in which choices are made and implemented. Thus, the field of environmental studies integrates the natural sciences with environmental ethics, environmental economics, environmental law, and planning Environmental studies: Earth as a Living Planet provides an introduction to the entire spectrum of relationships between people and the environment.
