Overview

The environment has, in recent years, shot to the top of the political agenda as decision-makers seek to respond to growing concern about increasingly severe ecological problems. Environmental Politics provides an accessible introduction to this often complex area by identifying and exploring the dimensions of environmental politics and analyzing their impact on political life in general. The book covers Green ideology, the environmental movement and the institutions of environmental policy in Britain and internationally. It also looks at how environmentalism has affected political parties and the policy process. The book combines the philosophical scope of environmental politics with practical political and policy issues. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate the key themes.
