Environment & Society reads more like a textbook than an actual book. I didn’t necessarily enjoy reading this at all. There was an argument made that wars, famine and disease are all natural ways of limiting population size. I think while this is true, it just doesn’t seem very effective (at least in terms of just looking at America). Overall I really just did not find this very interesting at all, and although I could see how this book seemed useful, it just isn’t captivating enough.
