"From the Foundations in Global Studies series, this student-friendly text follows a three-pronged approach to help students understand the globalizing processes relating to the environment and sustainability that are examined in a range of disciplines, including environmental studies, geography, global studies, political science, international affairs, comparative politics, and other disciplines. First, it presents foundational material that gives students the conceptual underpinnings required for rigorous analysis. This section opens with a brief historical overview of the concerns revolving around environmental sustainability in the modern era. Following this, the text will then present key concepts and theoretical constructs that define the global context for sustainable environmental practices, such as the key thinkers and theories on sustainable environmental practice, and the key international agencies and treaties involved in global discussions. The second part of the book examines the space where theory meets reality. It will touch on the various models and ways to measure sustainability, the range of environmental domains at play in the sustainability dialogue, and the controversies surrounding them. The third section employs case studies to examine theory and practice at work in particular situations. The case studies have been selected with an eye toward comprehensiveness of coverage across disciplines and across regions." -- Provided by publisher
