With this well-informed, readable and, despite its dire subject matter, quite enjoyable book, Daniel Stokols summarizes his perspective on this field to which he has contributed so much over the past decades.
Dan draws our attention to the huge importance of the rapidly ongoing digitalization process for socio-ecological systems dynamics. Along the way, the book serves as an excellent introduction to the field and presents much of the history and current state of Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine, one of the important global players in this field.
A must-read for everyone interested in interdisciplinary environmental and sustainability studies.

Social ecology, on the other hand, is a body of knowledge devoted to transdisciplinary approaches to understanding and solving societal and global problems based on ecological principles. Stokols' book provides a comprehensive and clear summary of that field that can't be found anywhere else.
He brings together in this book individual and aggregate level phenomena, the physical and the social, and objective and subjective perspectives. He shows the need to go beyond the limits of disciplinary purview, merging the various ecologies e. His guidance relies less upon throwing at the reader facts and figures, but more upon narratives and verbal explanations from a wide range of excellently referenced literature.
Remarkably, Professor Daniel Stokols has produced a volume that provides a solid foundation of the historical origins and conceptual foundations of social ecology spanning a century of theory and research. At the same time, this volume is also overwhelmingly grounded in new scholarship on confronting and managing global environmental problems, designing resilient and sustainable communities, and understanding the sociocultural and psychological impacts of digital environments.
This book expands the cannon to show how theory can be inspired, produced and engaged to address the challenges of the twenty-first century and beyond. It is THE classic work in social ecology. It is also a narrative of the emergence of social ecology as an approach to the changing problems of the world, including the development and consequences of novel phenomena, such as digital technology.
He highlights the value of social ecological methods for understanding and managing the joint influences of natural, architectural, sociocultural, and cyber environments on human behavior, health, and global sustainability. He contends that by working cooperatively across disciplines, nations, and continents we can begin to confront the complex threats facing humanity and the biosphere as a whole during the Antrhopocene Epoch. It would be an excellent text for an advanced undergraduate course or an early graduate-level seminar in a diverse array of disciplines, such as public health, geography, or sociology, especially if supplemented with further material on how to conduct social ecology research.
Overall, this text provides a historical accounting of the evolution of social ecology and its transdisciplinary approach and cements Dr. McIntyre-Mills and N.
