Covering and analysing important topics, such as the Kyoto protocol and deforestation, this book provides extensive coverage of all aspects of environmental politics. This unbiased survey is of interest to students, academics, business people and general researchers.

Four sections present a thorough overview of current issues in the politics of the environment in historical perspective. The first section consists of essays written by a variety of academic and other experts on topics including Globalization: The Environment and Development Debate; The State, International Relations and the Environment; Environmental Movements; Mass Media and Environmental Politics; and The Ethical Dimensions of Global Environmental Change.

The second section is an A-Z glossary of the Environment, which includes detailed entries explaining terms and topics such as Acid Rain, Biodiversity, Ozone Layer Depletion, Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development. In the third section maps show conservation areas, wetlands, tropical forests, greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption etc. In the final section, statistics offer data on issues such as greenhouse gas emissions, population growth, threatened species and ratification of environmental treaties.
