Jacques offers a unique analysis of the connections between global marine and atmospheric conditions to global political phenomena. He shows how human survival is intricately linked to the sustainability of the world ocean, a singular connected body of regional oceans. Jacques suggests how we can synthesize and coordinate global ecological information to avoid current crises including declining global fisheries, coral reef losses, and climate change. His book will be a valuable resource for researchers and students in environmental studies, marine sciences, and globalization studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Peter Jacques has written a unique and important book that makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the relationship between environmental quality, globalization, and international conflict. By drawing together regional case studies of ocean sustainability he demonstrates a startlingly strong correlation between economic globalization, the relative decline of marine systems, and armed conflict. The more intense the globalization is in a region, the greater the likelihood of marine ecosystem destruction and increased armed conflict. This book demonstrates that the current trend of economic globalization will not provide a sustainable environmental future and, contrary to the prevailing international relations wisdom, will also lead to increased human conflict. Dr. Jacques' work should be read by government, business, and NGO leaders all over the world as a well as by any serious students of security and environmental policy.. -- Zachary A. Smith, Northern Arizona University
Globalization and the World Ocean provides poignant critique of the application of neo-liberal politics, and its associated economic structures, in ocean space. * Global Environmental Politics *
This is an important addition to the literature on the international relations of global marine politics. Peter Jacques combines a global perspective with the study of the world oceans, which is going to be a major issue area in the 21st century. -- Gabriela Kutting, Rutgers University
