Environmental Sociology Papers
Papers by Allan Schnaiberg
August 20, 1939 - June 6, 2009
Professor Emeritus of Sociology and Former IPR Faculty Fellow
The founder of the field of environmental sociology, Allan Schnaiberg published a large and influential body of scholarly work during his tenure at Northwestern. He was affiliated with the Institute for Policy Research since its earliest beginnings as the Center for Urban Affairs, starting in 1969, and continued to be involved with Institute's research and activities as a faculty fellow and associate for nearly four decades. In particular, Schnaiberg is known for his "treadmill of production" framework, in which he describes how industrial interests push for continuous growth leading to adverse environmental and social impacts. The framework was outlined in his seminal book, The Environment: From Surplus to Scarcity (1980).
