Description - Global Warming and Global Politics by Matthew Paterson

Global warming is established as the major environmental issue in the international political agenda. It is commonly understood to be the most difficult problem to solve politically. Whilst there are many arguments about what should be done about global warming, there have been few attempts to explain the politics surrounding it. Global Warming and Politics fills this gap by looking at the major theories within the discipline of international relations, and considering how these might be able to provide accounts of the emergence of global warming as a political issue. After discussing the dominant neo-realist and neo-liberal institutionalist models, the book concludes that both political economy approaches and these developing discursive approaches have much to offer in helping us understand the international politics of global warming. Global Politics and Global Warming will be extremely useful for all those trying to build an understanding of international relations in general and of international environmental problems in particular.
