Global environmental politics: power, perspectives, and practice
Traditional views of global environmental politics take the structures and relations of international politics as a given. Solutions to environmental problems, then, must be products of concession, negotiations, and inevitable compromise-a world of top-down planetary management. :Lipschutz challenges students to question these conventional approaches. He argues that much light can be shed on global environmental degradation if we look beyond the politics of conflict and cooperation and explore environmental problems from their very "roots". Throughout the text, the author uses compelling cases to illustrate the effects of globalization and capitalism, yet is careful to make the link between the local and global to show how we, as individuals, are both consumers of goods and producers of pollution.
