Top ten books on the climate change movement | Working in development | The GuardianEdited by John Barry and Robyn Eckersley. Countering the current view of many environmental activists that sovereign nations cannot provide effective environmental governance, The State and the Global Ecological Crisis offers analyses and case studies that explore the prospects for "reinstating the state" as a facilitator of progressive environmental change rather than a contributor to environmental destruction. The authors recognize that, despite the new pressures of global economic competition and rapid technological change, the state remains the preeminent institution with the capacity and authority to secure environmental protection. The book explores the possibilities for the "greening" of the state, domestically and internationally, looking at states both as individual governments and in multilateral or regional regimes. It examines cases in North America, Europe, Australia, and the Philippines and analyzes the broader theoretical implications. The first part of the book focuses on domestic environmental governance, with both single and comparative case studies that range from the potential emergence of an "ecological state" paralleling the development of the welfare state to the theory and practice of environmental justice in the United States.
The State and the Global Ecological Crisis
At the beginning of the s, a handful of NGOs were calling for the world to wake up to global warming, but since then it has grown to become a mass movement. The campaign issues can be complex and the voices many. To help you navigate, here's a list of the top ten books to help you understand the movement. The latest book from Naomi Klein, author and activist, is set to be released in September this year. Before engaging with environmental issues, Klein was part of the movement against neoliberal globalisation. Her new book picks up a central critique of many climate groups, explaining why capitalism is deeply related to the climate crisis.
