Green political thought by Andrew Dobson( Book )

93 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. This new edition locates ecologism clearly within the general field of political ideologies, discussing the philosophical basis of green politics and the political-theoretical problems it raises. Green Political Thought is an excellent introduction to the field for students of environmental politics and of political ideologies, and for anyone who wishes to know why green ideas are important in the late twentieth century
Conservation and biodiversity by Andrew Dobson( Book )

27 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today the world faces the prospect of a devastating mass extinction, as species disappear at a rate that is many times faster than at any previous time in the earth's history. Finding ways to preserve the planet's rich variety of species is the challenge being taken up by conservation biologists, scientists who use their knowledge of ecology, genetics, and population dynamics to develop strategies for conserving biodiversity based on scientific principles. What really is the extent of biodiversity loss and how does one go about figuring it out? Why is biodiversity valuable for the earth and ourselves, and what can be done to conserve it? These are the questions that Andrew Dobson, a leading researcher and Princeton professor of ecology and epidemiology, addresses in his book. Beginning with discussions of species diversity, extinction rates, and how species endangerment is determined, Dobson goes on to discuss what is perhaps the book's most fascinating topic: the ins and outs of attempts to manage endangered species and the economics of different conservation strategies. The author describes the changes in animal populations before and after management attempts - from fish to whales, from the ivory trade in elephants to sales of rhino horns - and he analyzes the function of zoos and attempts to reintroduce species into the wild

Fairness and futurity : essays on environmental sustainability and social justice by Andrew Dobson( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 461 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
Political theory and the ecological challenge by Andrew Dobson( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 459 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."--Résumé de l'éditeur

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 427 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

Biosecurity : the socio-politics of invasive species and infectious diseases by Andrew Dobson( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biosecurity is the assessment and management of potentially dangerous infectious diseases, quarantined pests, invasive (alien) species, living modified organisms, and biological weapons. It is a holistic concept of direct relevance to the sustainability of agriculture, food safety, and the protection of human populations (including bio-terrorism), the environment, and biodiversity. Biosecurity is a relatively new concept that has become increasingly prevalent in academic, policy and media circles, and needs a more comprehensive and inter-disciplinary approach to take into account mobility, globalisation and climate change. In this introductory volume, biosecurity is presented as a governance approach to a set of concerns that span the protection of indigenous biological organisms, agricultural systems and human health, from invasive pests and diseases. It describes the ways in which biosecurity is understood and theorized in different subject disciplines, including anthropology, political theory, ecology, geography and environmental management. It examines the different scientific and knowledge practices connected to biosecurity governance, including legal regimes, ecology, risk management and alternative knowledges. The geopolitics of biosecurity is considered in terms of health, biopolitics and trade governance at the global scale. Finally, biosecurity as an approach to actively secure the future is assessed in the context of future risk and uncertainties, such as globalization and climate change
Contemporary environmental politics : from margins to mainstream by Piers Stephens( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 183 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
Listening for democracy : recognition, representation, reconciliation by Andrew Dobson( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although much prized in daily conversation, good listening has been almost completely ignored in that form of political conversation we know as democracy. This book examines the reasons why so little attention has been paid to the listening aspect of democratic conversation, explores the role that listening might play in democracy, and outlines some institutional changes that could be made to make listening more central to democratic processes. The focus on listening amounts to a reorientation of democratic theory and practice, providing novel perspectives on enduring themes in democracy such as recognition, representation, power and legitimacy-as well as some new ones, such as silence. Eschewing the pessimism of the 'realist' turn in democratic theory, the book shows how attention to listening can breathe life into the democratic project and help us to realise some of its objectives. Drawing on practical examples and multidisciplinary sources, the book shows how listening should be at the heart or representative and deliberative democracy rather than peripheral to them. It develops a notion of dialogic democracy based on structured, 'apophatic', listening, and meets the challenge of showing how this could be incorporated in parliamentary democracies. What should we be listening out for? This book addresses the question of political noise and uses the idea of recognition to develop an account of politics that takes us beyond the Aristotelian speaking being towards a Deweyan notion of the 'event' around which publics coalesce
