Recognizing that many undergraduate courses on global environmental ills, though well intentioned, erode students' sense of the possible, this collection of essays (all by teacher-scholars in the field) draws students and teachers of global environmental politics into classroom conversation about the overwhelming nature of global environmental threats, the tenuous and sometimes counterproductive links between knowledge and power, and ways of acting powerfully in the world in service of 'sustainability.'

I was assigned this book by Professor Maniates himself as a senior in college. I found the book refreshing and inspiring and I have even re-read the book since graduating. This is a must have book for any environmental student.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
