Description

Global Environmental Politics provides a fully up to date and comprehensive introduction to the most important issues dominating this fast moving field.

Going beyond the issue of climate change, the textbook also introduces students to the pressing issues of desertification, trade in hazardous waste, biodiversity protection, whaling, acid rain, ozone-depletion, water consumption, and over-fishing. . Importantly, the authors pay particular attention to the interactions between environmental politics and other governance issues, such as gender, trade, development, health, agriculture, and security.

Adopting an analytical approach, the authors explore and evaluate a wide variety of political perspectives, testing students' assumptions and equipping them with the necessary tools to develop their own arguments and, ultimately, inspiring students to pursue their own research endeavours in this diverse field.
