Clare Saunders is Senior Lecturer in Environmental Politics at the Environment and Sustainability Institute, University of Exeter.
This book successfully provides a constructive framework for considering environmental networks through a `dynamic process' combining a range of aspects of SMT which have previously been considered in isolation. It highlights the extensive, and often surprising, network links between environmental organisations of differing spatial and ideological standpoints. This book's depth and accessible writing style make it an excellent accompaniment to both new and established readers examining politics, environmentalism and social movements. -- William Knight, University of Nottingham * Political Studies Review Volume 13, Issue 1 *
