The Canadian Environment in Political Context
The Canadian Environment in Political Context uses a non-technical approach to introduce environmental politics to undergraduate readers. First published in 2015, this revised edition features expanded chapters on wildlife, water, pollution, land, and energy.
Beginning with a brief synopsis of environmental quality across Canada, this text moves on to examine political institutions and policymaking, the history of environmentalism in Canada, and other crucial issues including Indigenous peoples and the environment, as well as Canada's North. Enhanced with case studies at the end of each chapter, key words, and a comprehensive glossary, this text addresses the major environmental concerns and challenges that Canada faces in the twenty-first century.
