About this book

This book is based on a conference addressing the relationship between the environment and security in the post-Cold War world. It brings together scholars and practitioners from a variety of different disciplines and perspectives in an effort to both explore the complexities of the relationship between environmental variables and security conditions, and re-focus the debate within the environmental community. The book combines analytical frameworks and case study material with proposals for addressing environmental challenges and enhancing the security and welfare of peoples, states and regions.

Reviews

'Conflicts over shared natural resources, particularly water resources, can lead to armed conflict. Pursuing military security at the cost of social, economic and environmental well-being is akin to dismantling a house to salvage materials in order to erect a fence around. It is therefore very timely to have a book on Environment and Security. I am sure it will be of great benefit to all those interested in the subject of security.' - Mostafa Kamal Tolba, Former Executive Director UNEP (UN Environmental Program)

'This well-conceived volume combines a sophisticated understanding of international security with expertise on a wide range of environmental issues. The result is a series of studies that illuminate the nexus of environment and security without ever making exaggerated claims suggesting simple causality. These qualities make the book of as much interest to policy-makers as to the academic community.' - Richard Ullman, David K.E. Bruce Professor of International Affairs, Princeton University

'This useful collection, better integrated than most, deals effectively with an important and controversial array of problems. Its central message speaks wisely about the difficulties inherent in defining and then evaluating environmental security.' - Donald Kennedy, Bing Professor of Environmental Science, Stanford University
