About this book

Environmental problems are often international in scope, and a substantial body of academic work has evolved as a result, but this is the first book to bring these intrinsically related fields - international relations theory and ecophilosophy - together. This book asks what ecological crisis can teach international relations theorists, and what have they learnt up to date? What ecological perspective have governments and NGOs adopted on the global scene? Eric Laferriere and Peter J Stoett ask whether the environmental crises faced by scholars and policy makers have induced significant changes in perspective, and whether or not international politics theorists have reflected such shifts. Has the fact that environmental problems require international co-ordination affected eco philosophy? The first book to show how international relations theory relates to ecological thought, this groundbreaking book will be a point of departure for all international relations and political theorists, as well those involved with environmental politics and philosophy.
