The Environment and International History Paperback / softback
Part of the New Approaches to International History series
Studies of the history of international relations traditionally have focused on the decisions made by those at the highest levels of government.
In more recent years, scholars have expanded their attention to cover economic, cultural, or social interactions among nations.
What has remained largely ignored, however, is the impact of an increasingly-interdependent world upon the environment and, conversely, how environmental concerns have affected the ecology, social relationships, economics, and politics at national, regional, and global levels.
The Environment and International History fills this gap, looking at the interrelationship between international politics and the environment.
Using a transnational and interdisciplinary approach, this book examines how imperialism, war, and a divergence of interests between the developed and underdeveloped world all have had implications for plants, animals, and humans worldwide.
