Overview

One of the key questions to have exercised green political theorists in recent years concerns the relationship of the environment 'agenda' and democracy. Both environmentalists and democrats have a tendency to think of each other as natural bedfellows but in fact there is little theoretical or practical reason why they should be.

This book deals with the tensions between democracy and environmentalism from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives.
