Green Planet Blues: Environmental Politics from Stockholm to Tyoto

By Ken Conca; Geoffrey D. Dabelko et al. | Go to book overview

Preface

This book is a project of the University of Maryland's Harrison Program on the Future Global Agenda. We are grateful to Horace Harrison for making the program a possibility and to its current director, Dennis Pirages, for logistical, financial, and moral support. We appreciate the support of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, its Environmental Change and Security Project, and the Project's primary funder, the U.S. Agency for International Development Office of Population. We thank Melissa Brown, Madhavi Chavali, Beth DeSombre, Daniel Deudney, Aaron Frank, Joanne Grossi, Peter Haas, Margaret Keck, Deepa Khosla, Jennifer Knerr, Karen Litfin, Michael Maniates, Christa Matthew, Richard Matthew, Kristin Milavec, Ron Mitchell, Laura Munley, Kate O'Neill, Tim O'Riordan, Dennis Pirages, Jessica Powers, Rebecca Ritke, Natasha Shur, Marvin Soroos, Peter Stoett, Peter Taylor, Michael Vaden, Stacy VanDeveer, Paul Wapner, and Leo Wiegman for their help, advice, and support. Finally, our heartfelt thanks to our coeditor on the first edition, Michael Alberty.

For the second edition we have updated the text to cover developments since the 1992 Earth Summit, while preserving our original goals to discuss crosscutting issues of power and authority, juxtapose different environmental paradigms, and present a diversity of voices. In making revisions we benefited greatly from the advice of several colleagues who responded to a survey on their teaching experiences with the first edition. At the end of the introduction to each part, we have included a list of questions that we have found useful in stimulating critical thought, discussion, and learning. We also have appended to each part a number of suggestions for further reading and addresses of useful internet sites related to the themes developed in that part of the book. These are by no means comprehensive lists, but they will provide readers with entry points for the abundance of printed and electronic resources available on environmental matters.

Because many of the selections presented in this volume are excerpts, a brief explanation of our editing philosophy is in order. In those cases where space limitations precluded reprinting an entire essay, our goal has been to edit in such a way as to emphasize the underlying ideas and concepts. In many cases, this has meant leaving out complex elaborations, trenchant asides, or supporting examples. We have preserved the original notes corresponding to the material reproduced here but have left out notes corresponding to passages of text not included.
