Summary

At the beginning of the 21st century, the environment and the future of development continue to be issues of crucial importance. Most explanations of environmental crisis emphasize the role of population growth, thus focusing their attention on the poor. By comparison, Liberation Ecologies elaborates a political-economic explanation drawing from the most recent advances in social theory.

The new edition has been extensively revised to reflect recent changes in debates over the real definitions of development and environment, and contains nine completely new chapters. Bringing together some of the leading researchers in development, the book discusses the theory, growth, and impact of political ecology. In-depth case material drawn from across the developing world is used to explore the realities and impact of sustainability, while emphasizing both the environment and social theory as areas of contention and struggle.

Liberation Ecologies highlights new theoretical engagements between political ecology and poststructuralism, and challenges many conventional notions of development, politics, democracy, and sustainability.
