Editorial Reviews

Review

"Global Political Ecology is a critical book at a critical time. Political ecology has come of age and established global stature. A timely and important book. Read it!" Professor Piers Blaikie, University of East Anglia.

 "This is an important and provocative volume that relates key themes in political ecology to the political economy of global capitalism and policy failure. It breaks new ground by addressing topics vital to understanding contemporary social and environmental crises that have hitherto not received due attention. Certain to be a landmark text in the field."  Professor Raymond Bryant, King’s College London

"Global environmental problems, from climate change to the food we eat, loom heavily over us while policy makers fiddle with environmental agreements that ignore the sources of these burning issues. Global Political Ecology speaks to our anxieties by drawing attention to the political economic contexts and sites of knowledge production in which all roads seem to lead to market-based solutions. This superb text offers a conceptual and theoretical toolkit that will empower students of global environmental change to shape alternative political ecologies." Professor Thomas J. Bassett, University of Illinois.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Professor X on January 22, 2012
Format: Paperback
Despite numerous typos, this collection of analyses is of vital importance for political and business leaders and students of contemporary society. Regardless of the ideological cant evident in the introductory essay, the data supplied by the various chapters is compelling and must be reckoned with by everyone. If we are to survive this 'age of stupid' then this book is a beacon.
