Summary
"Although discussions about the global environment are now a daily occurrence--from companies touting energy-saving products to politicians debating how to best address the issue of climate change and other environmental concerns--it remains a topic plagued by misinformation and ideologically skewed arguments. For nearly twenty years, Global Environmental Politics has provided an up-to-date, accurate, and unbiased introduction to the world's most pressing environmental issues, and the fifth edition continues this tradition. Offering a comprehensive yet concise overview of the environment and international politics, this updated edition includes new material on the latest international environmental regimes, climate change, the environmental challenges of free trade and globalization, and the growing role of the environment in global security. It is vital reading for anyone wishing to understand the current state of the field and to make informed decisions about which policies might best safeguard our environment for the future"--Provided by publisher
