Politics of the Earth

Fourth Edition

John S. Dryzek

  • The book's discourse-centred approach offers a unique way of classifying and comparing the main strands of environmental politics
  • The author makes a complex subject accessible to students through an engaging style and use of pedagogical features such as further reading lists and discussion questions
  • The text balances a comprehensive overview of environmental discourses, including ecological limits and sustainability, with cutting edge analysis of new discourses such as 'Gray Radicalism', providing not only a student guide but a significant scholarly contribution to the field
  • Also available as an e-book with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter on 'Gray Radicalism' introduces an innovative approach to understanding and analysing contemporary, radical anti-environmental discourse
  • The redeveloped conclusion focuses on the Anthropocene, with a comprehensive discussion of its relationship to environmental discourse and ecological reflexivity
  • Expanded further reading lists and new end-of-chapter discussion questions help students delve deeper into the topic and extend their learning
  • All chapters have been thoroughly revised to include key developments in the area, with contemporary examples illustrating how discourses shape current debates on the environment
