Description:

This wide-ranging and path-breaking collection of essays on Chinars"s environmental crisis takes a new approach, transcending the typical "gloom and doom" media and scholarly report on Chinars"s environmental crisis, to address how the Chinese political and social systems were impacted and how they responded, or should respond, to the ecological challenges confronting China. Therefore, this collection provides innovative analyses about the impacts and responses'”both domestically and globally'”of Chinars"s political and social systems encompassing its social values, ameliorative, and preventative policies. It leaves us with such an important question to ponder: What social action will be needed in the near- and long-term future in order to avoid environmental disaster as well as to achieve environmental sustainability and social justice for the long term in China?
