Book Description

Despite growing evidence of the universality of environmental problems and of economic and cultural globalization, the development of a truly global environmental movement is at best tentative. The dilemmas which confront environmental organizations are no less apparent at the global than at national levels. This volume is a collection of 1990s research on environmental movements in western and southern Europe, the US and the global arena.


'This is a valuable collection of papers about the political mechanisms of different environmental groups in various countries.' - International Affairs

'The essays are written clearly and objectively, logically providing in-depth facts and information. The case studies described give excellent examples of real working situations. The reader is able to put the information contained in this book into a real global context of environmentalism in the modern world, and to gain an understanding of the dilemmas facing governments and institutionalised EMOs locally, nationally and globally.' - International Journal of Environmental Education and Information
