Review:

"This book appeals to a wide academic audience: master and PhD students in environmental sciences and human ecology, researchers in ecological politics and related fields as environmental law and sociology. Both the subject and the accessible character of the book make it most useful for a wide group of non-expert professionals operating in environmental consultancy and expertise. It is a book for all of us interested in the need for better environmental politics, explanation, and ethics." (Int. J. Environment and Pollution, 1 November 2014)

From the Back Cover:

Political ecology is a field that seeks to make sustainable outcomes more possible and imaginable, but also to critique and undermine the foundations of environmental injustice and destruction - from the wetland shores of the Gulf of Mexico and the forests of India to the slums of Tijuana and the suburbs of Arizona.

Written in clear and straightforward language and fully updated in the light of recent events, this new edition of Political Ecology presents the core concepts, central thinkers, and key works of a fast-growing and highly eclectic field. Using urban and rural examples from both the developed and underdeveloped world, the book provides the first full history of the development of political ecology over the last century and considers the major challenges facing the field now and for the future.

With study boxes, a range of illustrations, and new material throughout, this second edition argues that this urgent field, though chaotically diverse, is unified by a loose community of practice and by a certain kind of text, writing, and argument.
