About this book

Comprehensive and critical discussion of the new notion of environmental security, its origins and implications, and the wide variety of approaches to it. Barnett argues that ultimately environmental security is driven more by the power of security-makers than by the need to address environmental problems. By systematically uncovering the deficiencies of existing discourses, he develops an alternative, critical Green approach with practical implications.
