Description:
This book by two leading scholars offers the first systematic analysis of the relationship between globalization and the environment from the early Modern period to the present. The authors develop a broad conceptual framework for understanding the globalization of environmental problems and the highly uneven, often faltering, international political response. They develop linkages between economic globalization and environmental degradation and explore a range of key global environmental problems -- focusing on the two most challenging of all: climate change and biodiversity loss. Finally, they critically explore the challenges of environmental governance in a world defined by global capitalism and sovereign states. Providing a normative framework for evaluating global environmental governance, they suggest alternative institutional and policy responses. Through a rich set of case studies, this powerful book will help readers grasp the systemic causes of global environmental degradation as well as the myriad opportunities for reform of global environmental governance.
A world fit for us all -- A short history of globalization and the environment -- An overheated planet -- Remaking nature : biodiversity in peril -- Governing the planet.
