The Globalization and Environment Reader features a collection of classic and cutting-edge readings that explore whether and how globalization can be made compatible with sustainable development.

  • Offers a comprehensive collection of nearly 30 classic and cutting-edge readings spanning a broad range of perspectives within this increasingly important field
  • Addresses the question of whether economic globalization is the prime cause of the destruction of the global environment – or if some forms of globalization could help to address global environmental problems
  • Features carefully edited extracts selected both for their importance and their accessibility
  • Covers a variety of topics such as the ‘marketization’ of nature, debates about managing and governing the relationship between globalization and the environment, and discussions about whether or not globalization should be ‘greened’
  • Systematically captures the breadth and diversity of the field without assuming prior knowledge
  • Offers a timely and necessary insight into the future of our fragile planet in the 21st century
