About this book

Argues that the state is still the preeminent political institution for addressing environmental problems. Greening the state is a necessary step, Eckersley argues, toward greening domestic and international policy and law. This is the first book to suggest practical constitutional and multilateral arrangements that could help transform the liberal democratic state into a postliberal green democratic state.

A magnificent achievement which will be a key point of reference for years to come. - Andrew Dobson, Department of Government and Politics, Open University."
