About this book

This collection of specially commissioned essays aims both to broaden understanding of environmental issues, and to explore their implications for politics.

Media reviews
'Greening the Millennium' edited by London School of Economics geographer Jacobs, more than lives up to its promise [...] I would recommend Greening the Millennium to students and academics in geography, environmental studies, sociology, and political science, as well as to politicians, planners, policymakers, and indeed anyone with an informed interest in 'the environment'.
- B. Dodson, Queen's University

"This is one of the best assessments of the current state of the environmental debate and eco-politics in Britain which I have read for a long time! Jacobs brings together 17 top contributors from diverse backgrounds. Their analyses are competent, realistic and accessible and add up to a multi-dimensional overview [...]It is a major achievement of this volume that it picks up and critically reviews the major buzz-words, debates and strategies which currently dominate the eco-debate without reproducing either the presently widespread but arguably unjustified green optimism or the equally unjustified older eco-pessimism."
- Ingolfur Bluhdorn, University of Bath
