From the cover: “This important new book is a state-of-the-art examination of Political Ecology, its evolution as an academic subject, and how environmental knowledge is used in the realm of global international politics. Focusing on the generation of environmental knowledge with particular regard to the developing world, the book above all explores the discrepancies between environmental policies implemented by increasingly powerful international bodies and perceptions of issues found in more local contexts.
Split into three sections, the book analyses first the relationship between science and environmentalism before moving on to discuss the political ecology of one of the major areas of current concern, namely water management. The final section provides a well-documented analysis of the often discordant environmental power relations seen at the international, regional and local levels. Written by a team of international experts, this volume encapsulates the whole range of approaches that currently characterise the burgeoning field of Political Ecology.”
