About this book

The Politics of the Earth provides an accessible and engaging introduction to thinking about the environment by looking at the way people use language on environmental issues. Leading scholar John S. Dryzek analyses the various approaches which have dominated environmental issues over the last three decades and which are likely to be influential in the future, including survivalism, environmental problem solving, sustainability, and green radicalism.

This new edition includes more on global environmental politics, as well as updated and expanded examples including more material on China. Dryzek looks at the most modern discourses, including discussions surrounding climate change, and has reworked the material on justice and green radicalism to include more on climate justice and new developments such as transition towns and radical summits. An engaging writing style and helpful boxed material make this complex subject accessible to students.
