The continuous rise in the profile of the environment in politics reflects growing concern that we may be facing a large-scale ecological crisis. The new edition of this highly acclaimed textbook surveys the politics of the environment, providing a comprehensive and comparative introduction to its three components: ideas, activism and policy. Part I explores environmental philosophy and green political thought; Part II considers parties and environmental movements; and Part III analyses policy-making and environmental issues at international, national and local levels. This second edition has been thoroughly updated with new and revised discussions of many topics including the ecological state, ecological citizenship, ecological modernisation and the Greens in government and also includes an additional chapter on 'Globalisation, Trade and the Environment'. As well as considering a wide variety of examples from around the world, this textbook features a glossary, guides to further study, chapter summaries and critical questions throughout.

Review:

'Written with enviable clarity and attention to detail ... Sample questions, generous reading lists and a meaty bibliography make this a fine and extremely user-friendly pedagogical tool. Read Carter as a valuable device to teach, as well as research, the rapidly expanding field of environmental political science.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'What is outstanding is the depth and breadth of material which is rarely seen in this field of writing. It stands as an excellent introduction to the subject which deserves the widest readership.' British Ecological Society's Teaching Ecology Group Newsletter

'The scope and coverage of the book is its real strength: it is excellent ... exactly what is needed within this field, namely a challenging, stimulating and very rewarding introduction to a complex literature ... Carter's book comes very highly recommended and it is now arguably the best book of its type available.' Green Politics Newsletter
