This book, first published in 2006, brings together an international group of political theory scholars to think through the challenge that political ecology presents to political theory. Looking at fourteen familiar political ideologies and concepts such as liberalism, conservatism and justice, they question how they are re-shaped, distorted or transformed from an environmental perspective.
