Handbook of Global Environmental Politics by Peter Dauvergne (Editor)The second edition of this Handbookcontains more than 30 new and original articles as well as six essential updates by leading scholars of global environmental politics. This landmark book maps the latest theoretical and empirical research in this energetic and growing field. Captured here are the pioneering and lively debates over concerns for the health of the planet and how they might best be addressed. The introduction explores the intellectual trends and evolving parameters in the field of global environmental politics. It makes a case for an expansive definition of the field, one that embraces an interdisciplinary literature on the connections between global politics and environmental change. The remaining chapters are divided into four broad themes - states and cooperation; global governance; the political economy of governance; and knowledge and ethics - with each section covering key emerging issues. In-depth explorations are given to topics such as climate change, multinational corporations, international agreements and UN organizations, regulations and business standards, trade and international finance, multilevel and transnational governance, and ecological citizenship. Handbook of Global Environmental Politics, Second Editionis a comprehensive review of the field and offers cutting-edge ideas for further research. As such, scholars, students and policy makers will find themselves looking to it for many years to come. Contributors:S. Andresen, K. Backstrand, J.S. Barkin, S. Bernstein, F. Biermann, H.
