Description

"This is the best and most lively introduction to the study of global environmental politics. The editors have assembled a rich and diverse array of voices that capture all of the key ideas, actors, conflicts and themes in this burgeoning field. The fourth edition of Green Planet Blues also confirms, yet again, the editors' finely honed skills in talent spotting." --Robyn Eckersley, Head of Political Science, School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Melbourne

"In this updated edition of their classic textbook, Conca and Dabelko have produced a volume that stimulates and challenges. The diverse views represented in the volume challenge orthodox thinking, making for stimulating reading and class discussion. Where other volumes often present a consolidated view of the dominant thinking (or at least the dominant view in the U.S.), this volume provides readers with a much broader view of the perspectives of individuals and institutions shaping the dynamic of global environmental politics. Moreover, the fourth edition reflects recent trends and new knowledge, notably in globalization and peacebuilding as well as more broadly. It is essential reading to understanding the dynamics shaping international environmental law and institutions now and in the foreseeable future." --Carl Bruch, Senior Attorney and Codirector of International Programs, Environmental Law Institute

"The diverse views challenge orthodox ways of thinking about environmental issues and make for stimulating reading." --Choice

"Awareness of the degradation of our planet and the need for urgent international action should be the top priority of us all. As such I earnestly commend Green Planet Blues. Keep it on your bookshelf and dip into it regularly." --London School of Economics Book Review

Praise for prior editions:

"As a professor of environment and development, I would be lost without Conca and Dabelko's Green Planet Blues. This edition builds gracefully from the must-read classics of the 1970s to today's need-to-know issues--such as globalization, the WTO, and the role of local and global civil society. Using a political economy lens to bring together a multiplicity of voices, Conca and Dabelko have assembled a spectacular volume." --Dr. Robin Broad, American University
