About the Author

Paul Robbins is Professor and Director of the School of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona. He is the author of numerous publications including World Regions in a Global Context: People, Places, and Environments (with S. Marston, P.Knox, D. Liverman and V. Del Casino, 2010), Environment and Society: A Critical Introduction (with J. Hintz and S. Moore, Wiley-Blackwell, 2010), and Global Political Ecology (co-edited with R. Peet and M. Watts, 2011).


This book appeals to a wide academic audience: master and PhD students in environmental sciences and human ecology, researchers in ecological politics and related fields as environmental law and sociology. Both the subject and the accessible character of the book make it most useful for a wide group of non-expert professionals operating in environmental consultancy and expertise. It is a book for all of us interested in the need for better environmental politics, explanation, and ethics. (Int. J. Environment and Pollution, 1 November 2014)
