    Political Ecology addresses environmental issues which Innis was concerned with, from a contemporary, political economy perspective. They explore a wide range of themes and issues including:
    * sustainability
    * risk and regulation
    * population growth
    * planetary management
    * impact of humanity on environment
    * role of technology and communication.
    Case studies provide further insight into issues such as industrial racism, women and development and collective action by highlighting ethical and political questions and providing critical insights into the issues and debates in political ecology.
