Environmental Quality & Social Responsibility.
Khare, R. S.; And Others
Edited transcripts of presentations made at a conference sponsored by the University of Wisconsin--Green Bay are arranged in five sections: (1) "Mass Production, Mass Consumption, Mass Waste;" (2) "Man Versus Nature;" (3) "The Urban Social Environment: Problems of Affluence, Membership, and Security;" (4) "Institutional Response to Technological Change;" and (5) "Individual Rights Versus Collective Good." Each section contains the text of an invited address by a nationally prominent person, reactions from the Green Bay faculty, and discussion and questions from the audience. The proceedings concentrate on the social aspects of environmental quality, with the underlying assumption that environmental problems are primarily social rather than technological. The editors provide an overview and summary for each section of the collection. There is a select bibliography appended. (AL)
