Ecological crises have never been higher on the international political agenda. However, ecological thought and international relations theory have developed as separate disciplines. This ground-breaking study looks at the relationship between ecological thought and international relations theory arguing that there are shared concerns: peace, co-operation and security. The authors ask what ecological crisis can teach IR theorists as well as what ecological perspectives have been adopted by governments and international NGOs.

Book News
Brings international relations theory and ecophilosophy together and asks what the ecological crisis can teach international relations theorists. Examines the ecological attributes of realism, liberalism, and critical IR theory, and suggests that a critical ecological perspective can make an innovative contribution to IR theory. Explores the possibility that the international nature of contemporary environmental problems will affect ecological thought in turn. The authors are affiliated with John Abbott College, Canada, and Concordia University, Canada. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
