This text combines an accessible introduction to the most important environmental theories and concepts with a series of detailed case studies of the most pressing environmental problems.
The contributions in Gabriela Kutting's volume explore institutionalist and critical approaches to global environmental politics. The volume presents important insights for students and gives many hints for research and politics which lay ahead. The volume shows convincingly that justice plays an increasingly important role in global environmental policy making. - Ulrich Brand, University of Vienna, Austria "This text reminds readers that global environmental politics is a vibrant and evolving field of study. The book surveys a diverse set of ideas even as it focuses deserved attention on some of the most interesting and pressing problems of the day, including climate change, deforestation, and biological diversity. Perhaps most impressively, even as the text examines the tangible ecological costs of poverty, overconsumption, and inequality, it does not dodge difficult ethical and political questions concerning social justice and legitimate governance." - Rodger A. Payne, University of Louisville, USA
