These eighteen essays present innovative perspectives on global policies by introducing new concepts and by redefining others within the ecological framework. The authors explore a variety of ecological issues: food supply, oceanic pollution, climate disruption, and the more general need for equitable resource management. The relationship of environmental issues to other priorities in world politics is also examined, and a foundation is laid for creative reevaluation of international relations.
