"The best introduction to global environmental politics I have
--Andrew Hurrell, editor of "Regionalism in World Politics"
Human activity is changing the global environment on a scale
unlike that of any other era. Environmental deterioration is now a
global issue--ecologically, politically, and economically--that
requires global solutions. Yet there is considerable disagreement
over what kinds of strategies we should adopt in order to halt and
reverse damage to the global ecosystem.
What kinds of international institutions are best suited to
dealing with global environmental problems? Why are women and
indigenous peoples still marginalized in global environmental
politics? What are the consequences of the global ecological crisis
for economic and security policies? The Global Politics of the
Environment makes sense of the often seemingly irreconcilable
answers to these questions. It focuses throughout on the tensions
between mainstream strategies, which seek to build support for
reforms through existing institutions, and radical critiques, which
argue that environmental degradation is a symptom of a
dysfunctional world order that must itself be transformed if we are
to meet the challenge of saving the planet.
