Andrew Dobson's cogent and stimulating analysis of the political ideas, aims and strategies of the green movement has quickly established itself as the standard text in the field.

An introduction to the politics and philosophy of José Ortega y Gasset by Andrew Dobson( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a general survey of the life and work of the Spanish philosopher and essayist Ortega y Gasset (1183–1955), author of the widely read The Revolt of the Masses. Dr Dobson divides his study into sections devoted to Ortega's political thinking and to his philosophy, rooting these in the context of contemporary Spain and discussing the wider implications of their influence. He examines Ortega's position with regard to the Civil War, his ambivalent espousal of socialism, his emphasis on the importance of the select individual in the modernisation of society and creation of a nació vital; the appropriation of his ideas by Primo de Rivera in the cause of fascism. This book is intended to be accessible to both Hispanists and general readers with an interest in literature, history, intellectual and political thought and philosophy

Political theory and the ecological challenge by Andrew Dobson( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years the engagement between the environmental 'agenda' and mainstream political theory has become increasingly widespread and profound. Each has affected the other in palpable and important ways, and it makes increasing sense for political theorists in each camp to engage with one another. This book draws together the threads of this interconnecting enquiry in order to assess its status and meaning. Andrew Dobson and Robyn Eckersley have gathered together a team of renowned scholars to think through the challenge that political ecology presents to political theory. Looking at fourteen familiar political ideologies and concepts such as liberalism, conservatism, justice and democracy, the contributors question how they are reshaped, distorted or transformed from an environmental perspective."--Jacket
Fairness and futurity : essays on environmental sustainability and social justice by Andrew Dobson( Book )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fairness and Futurity: Essays on Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice brings together leading international figures in political theory and sociology, as well as representatives from the political community, to consider the normative issues at stake in the relationship between environmental sustainability and social justice. It raises important questions and sets out to provide the answers. If future generations are owed justice, what should we bequeath them? Is 'sustainability' an appropriate medium for environmentalists to express their demands? Is environmental protection compatible with intra-generational justice? Is environmental sustainability a luxury when social peace has broken down? -- Publisher description
Environmental citizenship( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Politics of nature : explorations in green political theory by Andrew Dobson( Book )

27 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does green political theory provide plausible answers to the central problems of political theory - problems of justice and democracy, of individual rights and freedom, and of human nature and gender? The contributors to this book, who come from a range of disciplines - philosophy, political science, sociology and economics - and a range of political backgrounds, explore this question from a variety of perspectives. They look at the relationship between green political ideas and liberalism, anarchism, feminism, social democracy, individualism, critical theory and christianity. Green political theory shares some basic ideas with anarchism, feminism and German critical theory. Yet it can and should be reconciled, according to some authors, with liberalism or social democracy. Christianity, which is often perceived by greens as part of the problem rather than part of the solution, is also shown to have some affinity with green thought. Additionally, some chapters focus on issues which seem peculiar to green thought; the critique of industrialization and economic growth; holism and ecocentrism. Not all chapters are purely theoretical; one chapter deals with social policies, another with forms of direct democracy. The Politics of Nature presents a uniquely comprehensive and balanced survey of current green political ideas. It is directed to those with academic interests in the environment, but the chapters that deal with practical issues will be of equal relevance to those with professional interests in the area
Jean-Paul Sartre and the politics of reason : a theory of history by Andrew Dobson( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Environmental politics : a very short introduction by Andrew Dobson( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental politics has many faces and operates at multiple scales: it preoccupies individuals as well as governments, drives local agreements as well as international treaties, results in minor business changes as well as wholesale business decisions, and fluctuates between a politics of protest and one of accommodation. Andrew Dobson offers a lively and comprehensive commentary on the many facets of environmental politics today. Looking towards the future, he asks whether environmental politics will be comfortably accommodated by mainstream politics, or whether the advent of the Anthropocene - a whole new geological epoch driven by human impact on the environment - will herald a break with the politics of growth that has dominated social life since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution."--Provided by publisher
Contemporary environmental politics : from margins to mainstream by Piers H. G Stephens( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new collection from the leading journal, "Environmental Politics", presents an excellent overview of the key themes found in contemporary green political thought since the early 1990s. Bringing together the journal's major work, this new book charts a fascinating period in which environmental politics developed from a marginal position in society and the academy, to its current place in the intellectual mainstream. Subdivided into clear sections on political theory, social movements, political economy and policy questions, and assisted by a contextualising introduction, this volume focuses on a set of clear themes: the character of green political theory; relationships with other political traditions and theories; origins and dynamics of contemporary environmental politics; differences, similarities and tensions between the North and South; the relationship of environmentalism to market economics and ecological modernization; environmental aspects of distributive justice at the local, national and global levels; and the roles, value and valuing of nature in green theory and institutional practice. As a compilation, this book is unique.; It delivers a snapshot of a variety of issues in the field, and is therefore ideally suited to teaching purposes, especially at postgraduate level. In addition, as each section is chronologically arranged, an evolution of related ideas can be clearly seen and appreciated, which builds an excellent understanding of the field of environmental politics
