Overview

Environment and Politics is a concise introduction to the study of environmental politics, explaining the key concepts, conflicts, political systems and the practices of policy-making. The authors examine a diverse range of environmental problems and policy solutions within different nations and cultures.

This third edition expands the discussion of the differences in environmental politics between liberal democracies, military dictatorships and one party states, drawing on research conducted in Burma, Thailand, China and Iran. Topics covered include:

  • the connections between green social movements and anti-globalization movements
  • the impact of globalization on NGOs
  • the rise in local environmental governance and international bureaucratic regimes
  • the global role of the World Bank and WTO
  • the case of Kyoto
  • the current phase of US unilateralism and its impact upon the global environment.

This text offers readers a greater understanding of international, national and local environmental politics and looks at future developments for effective local and international environmental diplomacy and both global and region-specific problem solving.
