Political Ecology : A Critical Introduction, Paperback / softback Book

Political Ecology : A Critical Introduction Paperback / softback

Part of the Critical Introductions to Geography series


An accessible, focused exploration of the field of political ecology The third edition of Political Ecology spans this sprawling field, using grounded examples and careful readings of current literature.

While the study of political ecology is sometimes difficult to fathom, owing to its breadth and diversity, this resource simplifies the discussion by reducing the field down into a few core questions and arguments.

These points clearly demonstrate how critical theory can make pragmatic contributions to the fields of conservation, development, and environmental management. The latest edition of this seminal work is also more closely focused, with references to recent work from around the world.

Further, Political Ecology raises critical questions about "traditional" approaches to environmental questions and problems.

This new edition: Includes international work in the field coming out of Europe, Latin America, and AsiaExplains political ecology and its tendency to disrupt the environmental research and practice by both advancing and undermining associated fields of studyContains contributions from a wide range of diverse backgrounds and expertiseOffers a resource that is written in highly-accessible, straightforward languageOutlines the frontiers of the field and frames climate change and the end of population growth with the framework of political ecology An excellent resource for undergraduates and academics, the third edition of Political Ecology offers an updated edition of the guide to this diverse, quickly growing field that is at the heart of how humans shape the world and, in turn, are shaped by it.
