Summary
"This book by two leading scholars offers the first systematic analysis of the relationship between globalization and the environment from the early Modern period to the present. Peter Christoff and Robyn Eckersley disentangle and clarify the relationship between the processes of modernization, globalization, and global environmental change. Through a rich set of case studies, including a special focus on the challenging global problems of climate change and biodiversity loss, this powerful book will help readers grasp the systemic causes of global environmental degradation as well".--
