About this book

Why do issues of environmental protection continue to take a back seat to economic competition, particularly in the international realm? Living With Nature argues that in order to answer this question we must view the debate about environmental sustainability in terms of the basic cultural and political questions underpinning the dynamics of the environmental crisis.
