Global Warming and Global Politics

By Matthew Paterson | Go to book overview

Series editors’ preface

While concern for the human habitat and ideologies affirming the vital link between mother earth and the humans species have had a long history and a constant appeal, the past three decades have witnessed a surge in an awareness that humanity is inflicting on itself permanent and possibly irretrievable environmental damage. This series of books on the politics of the environment aims to provide the information and the perspective needed for an understanding of this predicament, of the anxieties to which it has given rise, and of the steps that are being taken at national and international level to address the problems that it poses.

The urgency of the environment predicament has already produced a substantial corpus of publications, and that corpus is constantly growing. The present series covers three broad areas. The first consists of the ideas and debates that the environmental movement has generated. There is room in the series for treatments of both speculative and practical contributions to those debates, the aim being to engage in analysis rather than advocacy. Second, the series contains analyses of the fortunes of the various political movements and organisations that have environmental goals. These range from inchoate and spontaneous collective action to the more organised and abiding political parties and non-governmental organisations. At the same time, the environmental policies that other political parties have been led to adopt are included, even in cases where those parties espouse ideological positions distant from those characteristic of green parties and movements. A third concern of the series is policy-making processes at national and international levels and, increasingly, the processes of trying to implement programmes to tackle existing environmental degradation in ways that do not simply worsen the problems and create new ones.

The emphasis, at least in the preliminary stages of the series, is on the advanced industrial countries. However, the series editors are fully aware
