   schema:description "This book advances a social-ecological theory to reconnect nature and society through sustainable transformation of interacting social and ecological systems. Knowledge integration across the boundaries of social and natural sciences is not widespread, blocked by the specialisation of theories and their competing forms of explanation and interpretation. Chapters in this book describe a new social-ecological theory that connects concepts and theories from both sides to create a new interdisciplinary approach. Inter- and transdisciplinary knowledge synthesis creates possibilities to analyse global environmental problems more systematically by integrating specialized research on environmental problems. The author uses social-ecological theory to analyse and explain problems and processes of global change in modern society such as climate change and adaptation to it, ecosystem change, and transformation of the industrial energy regime, finally offering pathways of transformation to a future sustainable society. Karl Bruckmeier is Professor in the Department of Sociology, National Research University - Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia. Formerly he was Professor in Human Ecology at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden."@en ;
