"This text reminds readers that global environmental politics is a vibrant and evolving field of study. The book surveys a diverse set of ideas even as it focuses deserved attention on some of the most interesting and pressing problems of the day, including climate change, deforestation, and biological diversity. Perhaps most impressively, even as the text examines the tangible ecological costs of poverty, overconsumption, and inequality, it does not dodge difficult ethical and political questions concerning social justice and legitimate governance." - Rodger A. Payne, University of Louisville, USA
