About this book

Provides a balanced understanding of the relationship between globalization and environmental quality. Arthur Mol bases his arguments on his theory of ecological modernization, which holds that, although processes of modernization and globalization often result in environmental degradation, they can also encourage policies and programs designed to arrest degradation and improve environmental quality. He analyses both globalization's destructive environmental consequences and its contribution to global environmental reform.

This book provides a stimulating analysis of ecological modernization in the context of globalization. Globalization and Environmental Reform is the most important introduction to modern environmental policy yet published. - Martin Jaenicke, Head of the Environmental Policy Research Unit (FFU), Department of Political and Social Sciences, Free University of Berlin, Germany, and member of the German Council of Environmental Advisors
