About this book

The New Carbon Economy: Constitution, Governance and Contestation provides a critical understanding of the carbon economy. It offers key insights into the constitution, governance and effects of the carbon economy, across a variety of geographical settings. The New Carbon Economy: Constitution, Governance and Contestation examines different dimensions of the carbon economy from a range of disciplinary angles in a diversity of settings. It provides ways for researchers to subject claims of newness and uniqueness to critical scrutiny. Furthermore, it historicizes claims of the "newness" of the carbon economy, and covers a range of geographical settings including Europe, the US, and Central America.
