About this book

The book comprises thirteen papers on environmental issues, with particular reference to future developments (for example, new technologies, paths in social and political theory, methodologies). It is divided into three sections, moving from social constructions of 'the environment' in the first section to questions of green political theory and practice in the second, and concluding with issues of environmental risk and future technologies. The work is interdisciplinary, with contributors ranging from philosophers to human geographers.
