Debates about the causes and impacts of global environmental degradation go to the heart of economic and political systems and raise fundamental questions about power and inequity in a globalized world. The comprehensively revised 2nd edition of this popular text provides wide-ranging coverage of the international negotiations and on assessment of the international political economy of the environment, normative and policy debates on environmental governance, and of prospects for the pursuit of environmental security.

Reviews of Previous Edition: 'Well constructed and researched...Lorraine Elliott's comprehensive study reveals the gaping chasm between statements of principle and rhetoric on the one hand and political and financial commitments on the other...' - Times Literary Supplement 'This is an excellent general introduction to global environmental politics. Its range is impressive, its coverage comprehensive and its organization clear and logical.' - Andrew Hurrell, Oxford University
