Aiming to develop a critical approach to global environmental politics, this work does not advocate the construction of new international institutions, but argues that the construction of alternative social and political structures is necessary. After an examination of policy-making surrounding sea defences, which challenges the notion that political institutions are neutral regarding environmental change, it examines the political dynamics of car culture, and of the meat centred fast food industry.
'...an innovative and thoughtful approach to global environmental politics...a point of departure for future critical scholarship.' - Marc Williams, International Affairs '...a fine and lucidly written example of the necessary interdisciplinarity with which the environmental problematic needs to be subjected...will become a standard reference at least in International Relations...This is a good book. It is a book that will be of value across the disciplines. It is also a book that has value across the levels of engagement from undergraduate specialist text to postgraduate course book, from general interest readership to international theory specialists.' - Julian Saurin, University of Sussex
