From the Publisher"Barry and Eckersley provide an invaluable and timely corrective to the many jeremiads declaring the erosion or collapse of the state in the face of ceaseless globalization. Not content with reviewing and repeating the call to 'bring the state back in', the editors and contributors to this fine volume express the added enthusiasm of developing a critical green theory of the state. This is a much needed and much deferred ambition to which '*The State And The Global Ecological Crisis* represents a powerful, coherent, and lucid original contribution."—Julian Saurin, Department of International Relations and Politics, University of Sussex
"This is an impressive, provocative, and interesting collection of essays. It should be of particluar interest to political scientists and students of science studies and should also appeal to policy analysts, policymakers, and participants in the Conferences of the Parties." —Ronnie Lipschutz, Professor of Politics, University of California, Santa Cruz
"Eckersley's book will be a significant contribution for those in several subfields of politics — theory, comparative, international — for those concerned about green politics, and for those who work on theories of the state. It is especially significant that she offers critical assessments of both the realist perspective on the environmental crisis and the limits of the greening of the liberal democractic state."—Ronnie Lipschutz, Professor of Politics, University of California, Santa CruzPlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote.
