About this book


Debates about the causes and impacts of global environmental degradation go to the heart of economic and political systems and raise fundamental questions about power and inequity in the contemporary world. This text provides a lucid and wide-ranging analysis of those debates and competing views on environmental governance, the crisis of capacity in the state system, the international political economy of the environment, strategies for sustainable development and the pursuit of environmental security.
