"Lee-Anne Broadhead's book will gain a strong place on reading lists as an essential text."-Matthew Paterson
Introducing students to global environmental politics from a critical perspective, Lee-Anne Broadhead reveals the yawning gap between the rhetoric of international agreements and the reality of meaningful results.
Broadhead argues that the current emphasis on green diplomacy and regime creation reproduces a dangerous way of thinking about the human relationship with the natural environment¿a way of thinking that is at the root of environmental problems. She effectively integrates concepts from international political economy and international environmental politics to demonstrate that the regimes established to manage the global commons represent no more than a status quo approach, and in fact reinforce inequalities and environmentally destructive practices. Engaging with mainstream debates, her concise, accessible analysis points clearly to the need for alternative international structures that have social justice and ecological awareness as their starting point.
Lee-Anne Broadhead is assistant professor of political science at the University College of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.
