This text by respected senior scholars offers students a broad conceptual framework for understanding the globalization of environmental problems and the highly uneven global political response. The authors cover key global environmental problems while focusing especially on the most challenging global environmental problem of all: climate change. They provide conceptual linkages between economic globalization and environmental degradation—focusing in particular on trade and environment—and the globalization of the system of sovereign states. Finally, they critically explore the challenges of environmental governance in a world of global capitalism and sovereign states.
