About this book

Makes explicit the complex causal connections between world trade and environmental degradation, for example that between GNP increases in rich countries and deforestation in poor ones.

This intriguing study applies lateral pressure theory previously used to understand great-power wars to global North-South relations and the environmental consequences of free trade. Lofdahl's work is notable for its use of multiple methodologies to analyze complex systems. --Joshua S. Goldstein, Professor of International Relations, American University "Lofdahl asks a bold question and chooses an uncommon path to find an answer. He shows an admirable command of the literature and impressive mastery of a wide range of analytic methods. And all this is presented through the clearest writing I have seen in years." --Brian M. Pollins, The Mershon Center and Department of Political Science, Ohio State University
