The revised and updated third edition of this cutting-edge collection brings together classic readings and important new material on global environmental politics. In selections chosen for their authority and edited to preserve their integrity, Green Planet Blues examines international environmental controversies from a diversity of viewpoints and value orientations, ranging from elite political actors and intergovernmental organizations to social-movement activists and citizens around the world. Paradigms of sustainability, environmental security, and ecological justice are used to explain topics ranging from deforestation, toxic dumping, and watershed degradation to transboundary pollution and the global commons. Green Planet Blues is an essential part of any course in environmental studies and international relations. This third edition features new material on globalization and the environment, social movement activism, the World Bank, the WTO, 'stakeholder' approaches to international environmental cooperation, and the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development. Each section has been supplemented with critical thinking exercises; and a book-related web site provides links to a wide array of suggested readings and Internet resources
