book5 Navigating Environmental Attitudes by Thomas A. Heberlein

Navigating Environmental Attitudes
Thomas A. Heberlein

240 pages
Oxford University Press, USA (September 24, 2012)
... Rather than necessarily trying to change public attitudes, we need to design solutions and policies with them in mind. He illustrates these points by tracing the attitudes of the well-known environmentalist Aldo Leopold, while tying social psychology to real-world behaviors throughout the book.
"As Thomas Heberlein notes, attitude is among the most used and least understood terms applied to describe our views of the natural world. In a book remarkable for its clarity and relevance, Heberlein enlightens and educates us about the meaning of attitudes, its role in our relationship to nature, and the potential for changing attitudes. He takes this difficult and often laborious subject and makes it richly entertaining and informative, using many vivid examples and experiences. This is a must read book for those interested in environmental conservation and management."
-- Stephen Kellert, Tweedy/Ordway Professor Emeritus of Social Ecology, Yale University
"Navigating Environmental Attitudes is a terrific book. Heberlein's authentic voice and the book's organization around stories keeps readers hooked. Wildlife biologists, natural resource managers, conservation biologists - and anyone else trying to solve environmental problems - will learn a lot about attitudes, behaviors, and norms; and the fallacy of the cognitive fix."
-- Stephen Russell Carpenter, Stephen Alfred Forbes Professor of Zoology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.
When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."
Aldo Leopold
