The human-environment relationship, often contentious yet very closely intertwined, is one of the most pressing concerns of the twenty first century. Bringing together a range of case studies from both global North and South to illustrate the broad range of current theories on this relationship, this book presents significant cutting-edge research into the continuing (re)definition of political ecology as it relates to environmental contestation. In particular, it examines how various theoretical approaches shape environmental conflicts, how policies and technologies empower and encourage political and ecological outcomes. Covering issues such as mining regulation, climate change, water resource struggles, human displacement, genetic engineering and mapping technologies at a wide range of scales, this edited volume provides a broader, critical understanding of the theoretical frameworks and policies underlying resource and environmental conflicts.
