Environmental problems are firmly on the political agenda. The stark threat to the planet from climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution can no longer be ignored by governments, political parties, businesses or individuals. Responding to the considerable developments of the last decade, Neil Carter has updated his popular textbook thoroughly, while retaining the existing structure of previous editions. The Politics of the Environment continues to analyse the relationship between ‘green ideas’ and other political doctrines, the development of green parties and public policymaking, and environmental issues at international, national and local levels. It provides students with a comprehensive comparative introduction to ideas, activism and policy. New to this edition are discussions on climate justice, climate legislation and recent environmental struggles, such as demonstrations against fracking. It employs a variety of global examples and includes pedagogical features such as boxes, a glossary and guides to further study.
‘This update of Carter’s excellent text is very welcome, as it provides a superb overview of environmental ideologies, parties and movements, and policy issues. Ideal for courses in environmental politics and policy.’ Riley E. Dunlap, Regents Professor and Dresser Professor Emeritus, Oklahoma State University
‘The Politics of the Environment remains the authoritative textbook on environmental politics. This fully updated third edition includes the latest developments in theory and practice and provides students and scholars a comprehensive comparative introduction to environmental ideas, activism, politics and policy.’ Arthur P. J. Mol, Rector Magnificus, Wageningen University and Research
‘I have used earlier editions of Carter’s The Politics of the Environment to introduce students to environmental politics many times, and they have always appreciated its clarity, breadth and the concise way it helps them understand the often bewildering complexity of the subject. The new edition will serve students and teachers brilliantly with the same qualities, and do so incorporating many of the key dynamics that have occurred since the last edition.’ Matthew Paterson, University of Manchester
‘Environmentalism in its many manifestations continues to evolve and expand its compass, and so too has this leading textbook. The third edition of The Politics of the Environment remains essential (and highly accessible) reading for anyone who wants to understand the changing ideas, movements, politics and policies associated with the civilizational challenge of our time.’ Robyn Eckersley, University of Melbourne
Environmental problems are firmly on the political agenda, and we cannot ignore issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. Responding to these recent developments, this third edition has been revised to include new discussions on climate justice, the UK Climate Change Bill and environmental demonstrations against fracking.
