Dr. Ron Mitchell publishes a new textbook on International Environmental Politics

Dr. Ronald Mitchell has published a new textbook with Sage Publications in December 2009. “International Politics and the Environment” provides a sophisticated overview of the theories, concepts and methods central to the complex and contentious field of International Environmental Politics. Mitchell carefully introduces students to the political processes involved in both causing and resolving international environmental problems. Each chapter:

  • Links environmental policy to politics, bringing in a wide range of practical real-life examples;
  • Deepens students’ theoretical understanding, helping them to identify and explain international environmental problems and their solutions;
  • Goes beyond description and develops students’ ability to evaluate claims about outcomes in international environmental politics through empirical testing.

A rounded, in-depth examination of International Environmental Politics, this book has been specifically written for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in global environmental politics and modules of broader international relations programs.
