Climate Change and Poverty by Tony FitzpatrickArguably the most important challenge facing the world in the twenty-first century is climate change, which will affect global issues of poverty and social exclusion such as food, fuel, housing, transportation, and air pollution. In Climate Change and Poverty, Tony Fitzpatrick offers a timely new "ecosocial" way to think about the conjunction of climate change and poverty, analyzing the causes, symptoms, and possible solutions to poverty and establishing a cross-national, multidisciplinary approach that will be of use to scholars, researchers, and policy makers alike.

Environment in the Lives of Children and Families by Ann Phoenix; Janet Boddy; Catherine Walker; Uma VennamThis new Policy Press Short presents innovative international research into how the term "environment" is understood within families and how that plays out in everyday lives. Based on a study that involved creative qualitative work with families in India and the United Kingdom, it shows how environmental practices are negotiated in families, and how they relate to values, identities, and society. Through that analysis, we begin to see the ways in which families and childhood are constructed as sites for intervention in debates about climate change.

Climate Change, Consumption and Intergenerational Justice by Kristina Diprose; Gill Valentine; Robert Vanderbeck; Katie McQuaid; Chen LiuThe United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development makes climate change and responsible consumption key priorities for both industrialized and emerging economies. Moving beyond the Global North, this book uses innovative cross-national and cross-generational research with urban residents in China and Uganda, as well as the UK, to illuminate international debates about building sustainable societies and to examine how different cultures think about past, present, and future responsibility for climate change. The authors explore how far different nations see climate change as a domestic issue whilst looking at local explanatory and blame narratives to consider profound questions of justice, between those nations that are more and less responsible for, and vulnerable to, climate change.

Social Policy in Post-Apartheid South Africa by Ndangwa NoyooThis book critically examines the current social policy in post-apartheid South Africa and proposes an alternative social policy agenda to create a new development pathway for the country. Taking social policy as a vehicle that will facilitate the creation of a new society altogether, namely the "Good Society," the author argues for the adoption of policy that will socially re-engineer South Africa. The author shows how the policy tools and development interventions which were undertaken by the post-apartheid state in driving South Africa's transformation agenda failed to emancipate many individuals, families, and communities from the cycle of intergenerational poverty and underdevelopment. He contends that social policy interventions that foster the social re-engineering of South African society must take place to untangle the inherited colonial-apartheid social order. This book includes comparative analyses on the Global South and Global North to present the ways in which countries such as post-Second World War Great Britain and Sweden, and post-independence Zambia of the 1960s and 1970s, were able to use social policy to create new societies altogether or places similar to the "Good Society." The conceptual and methodological issues that form the basis for this book reside in public policy-making and the public good and will be of interest to scholars of social policy, social development, and South African society.
