About the book:

This important new book offers a state-of-the-art examination of political ecology, its evolution as an academic subject, and how environmental knowledge is used in the realm of global international politics. Focusing on the development of environmental knowledge with particular regard to the developing world, the book above all explores the discrepancies between environmental policies implemented by domineering international bodies, and perceptions of issues found in more local contexts.

Split into three sections, the book explores firstly the relationship between science and environmentalism, before moving on to discuss the political ecology of a major area of current concern - water management. The final section provides a well-documented analysis of the often discordant environmental power relations seen at international and local level. Written by a team of international experts, this volume encapsulates the whole range of approaches that currently characterise the burgeoning field of political ecology.
