Environmental Security: A Guide to the Issues

By Elizabeth L. Chalecki | Go to book overview

Preface and Acknowledgments

When Praeger first approached me about writing the Environmental Security volume for their Contemporary Security Issues series, I thought that this would be a great opportunity to put the basic ideas of environmental security in front of a whole new audience. This volume, like the others in the series, is a primer aimed at students, policy makers, and the curious public. The topic is very large and connected to very many other issues in security and international relations such as economic development; demographic trends; social, cultural, and religious issues; and domestic politics. I could not possibly address every facet of every related issue, or this book would have become too heavy to lift. However, there should be enough here to make clear the links between environmental issues and security concerns, and spark further study.

I would like to thank several people: my colleague and friend Stacy VanDeveer for his excellent introduction, and his encouragement when I told him I wanted to write “not another academic tome” about a topic that interests both of us; my editor Steve Catalano at Praeger, who was patient with my occasional disappearance off the grid; Robin Tutt at ABC-CLIO, who did a heroic job dealing with the graphics and pictures contained herein; and my colleagues and students at Boston College and Goucher College who inspire me with their questions and insights. Special appreciation and gratitude go to my invaluable research assistants Katya Rucker and Peter Morizio, who cheerfully tracked down obscure references and proofread endless pages. I expect world-changing things from you guys, so get busy.
