Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines how globalization and the environment are connected issues.

This groundbreaking study brings together economic globalization and the environment as never before. Gabriela Kütting argues for an "eco-holistic" approach that merges social, political, economic, and environmental analysis, so that a globalizing political economy may be understood in relation to environmental and social concerns. Key to this merging are the historical dimension of environmental-societal relations, the concept of consumption, and the concept of equity. To illustrate the utility of the eco-holistic approach, Kütting draws out the linkages between social and environmental degradation in West Africa, environmental and economic policies in the North, and the shopping habits of individual consumers, using cotton agriculture and the globalizing political economy of textiles as a case study.

"This book introduces an innovative approach for examining the relationship between the international political economy of globalization and environmental issues." — Ho-Won Jeong, editor of Global Environmental Policies: Institutions and Procedures

"What is significant about Kütting's argument is the necessity to include the relationship between society and the environment in our understanding of the outcomes of globalization processes and international relations. The book is bold and moves away from run-of-the-mill works dealing with globalization and environmental issues." — Sing C. Chew, coeditor of Structure, Culture, and History: Recent Issues in Social Theory

Gabriela Kütting is Assistant Professor of of Political Science at Rutgers University at Newark and the author of Environment, Society, and International Relations: Towards More Effective International Environmental Agreements.
