Andrew Jamison has been writing and teaching about environmental politics, including the politics of renewable energy, since his undergraduate days at Harvard in the late 1960s, when he published a book, The Steam Powered Automobile: An Answer to Air Pollution (Indiana University Press 1970). After graduation he moved to Sweden where he has lived ever since, working at the interface between science and technology policy and environmental politics. He served as coordinator of the EU-funded project, Public Participation and Environmental Science and Technology Policy Options (PESTO), from 1996 to 1999, and most recently, of the Program of Research on Opportunities and Challenges in Engineering Education in Denmark (PROCEED), funded by the Danish Strategic Research Council. He is the author or co-author of ten books, including The Making of Green Knowledge: Environmental Politics and Cultural Transformation (Cambridge University Press 2001) and, most recently, The Making of Green Engineers: Sustainable Development and the Hybrid Imagination (Morgan & Claypool 2013).
