The state and the global ecological crisis by John Barry( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors recognize that, despite the new pressures of global economic competition and rapid technological change, the state remains the preeminent institution with the capacity and authority to secure environmental protection. The book explores the possibilities for the "greening" of the state, domestically and internationally, looking at states both as individual governments and in multilateral or regional regimes. It examines cases in North America, Europe, Australia, and the Philippines and analyzes the broader theoretical implications. The first part of the book focuses on domestic environmental governance [...] second part addresses the role of the state in transnational environmental governance and looks at topics including environmental rights in the European Union, hybrid forms of governance involving both state and nonstate actors, and an alternative foundation for global environmental governance."--pub. website

Special responsibilities : global problems and American power by Mlada Bukovansky( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The language of special responsibilities is ubiquitous in world politics, with policymakers and commentators alike speaking and acting as though particular states have, or ought to have, unique obligations in managing global problems. Surprisingly, scholars are yet to provide any in-depth analysis of this fascinating aspect of world politics. This path-breaking study examines the nature of special responsibilities, the complex politics that surround them and how they condition international social power. The argument is illustrated with detailed case-studies of nuclear proliferation, climate change and global finance. All three problems have been addressed by an allocation of special responsibilities, but while this has structured politics in these areas, it has also been the subject of ongoing contestation. With a focus on the United States, this book argues that power must be understood as a social phenomenon and that American power varies significantly across security, economic and environmental domains"--
Political theory and the ecological challenge by Andrew Dobson( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 610 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

Markets, the state, and the environment : towards integration by Robyn Eckersley( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Markets, the State and the Environment advances the sustainable development debate by critically examining the range of tools for environmental protection available to governments, including direct regulation, market-based incentives, privatisation, and the encouragement of self-regulation. In the past, environmental policy debates have often been polarised into a simple contest between bureaucratic regulation and market-based measures. Markets, the State and the Environment transcends these outmoded debates to develop a more comprehensive set of principles and recommendations to guide environmental policy makers. The various instruments for environmental protection are assessed by different contributors against a broad range of criteria: environmental effectiveness, efficiency, democratic participation, and social equity. Further, the shift towards increasingly more open and global markets is considered for its effect on environmental policy. This book has a wide-ranging focus. It takes stock of developments in environmental management in Europe, USA and Australia
The Oxford handbook of international political theory( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International Political Theory (IPT) focuses on the point where two fields of study meet - International Relations and Political Theory. It takes from the former a central concern with the 'international' broadly defined; from the latter it takes a broadly normative identity. IPT studies the 'ought' questions that have been ignored or side-lined by the modern study of International Relations and the 'international' dimension that Political Theory has in the past neglected. A central proposition of IPT is that the 'domestic' and the 'international' cannot be treated as self-contained spheres, although this does not preclude states and the states-system from being regarded by some practitioners of IPT as central points of reference.00This Handbook provides an authoritative account of the issues, debates, and perspectives in the field, guided by two basic questions concerning its purposes and methods of inquiry. First, how does IPT connect with real world politics? In particular, how does it engage with real world problems, and position itself in relation to the practices of real world politics? And second, following on from this, what is the relationship between IPT and empirical research in international relations? This Handbook showcases the distinctive and valuable contribution of normative inquiry not just for its own sake but also in addressing real world problems."--Dust jacket
