About this book

This path-breaking collection covers the significance of China's extreme environmental challenges for both Chinese society and the world, how these challenges are impacting domestic Chinese society and its political institutions, and how these institutions are responding in their efforts to address the environmental problems. While there are several existing notable works on the nature of China's environmental crisis that describe contemporary China's dire environmental conditions, this book goes beyond description of the crisis and, furthermore, provides insightful analyses of how the government and people of China are responding to its environmental degradation with regard to such themes as: desertification, food security, energy, climate change, and water pollution.
