Nature, Liberty and Dystopia

Ethical Consumption

Global Political Ecology

On the Moral Significance of Nature for Human Freedom

A Critical Introduction

Piers Stephens, University of Georgia, USA

This collection of essays written by leading international scholars argues that we are seeing a mainstreaming of ethical concerns around consumption and lifestyle practices, reflecting a growing awareness of the risks and excesses of contemporary lifestyles in the West. Written in a lively and accessible manner, the book offers case studies of ethical consumption across a range of cultural and media sites, providing a range of critical tools for understanding the recent emergence of this phenomenon. This collection is a must-read for anyone interested in the relationship between consumer culture and contemporary social life.

Edited by Dick Peet, Clark University, USA, Paul Robbins, University of Arizona, USA and Michael Watts, University of California, Berkeley, USA

Series: Routledge Research in Environmental Politics This new fascinating study is grounded in the history of modern political ideas to illuminate how nature may be regarded as a touchstone of liberty in political thought.

Environmental Politics is concerned with four particular aspects of the study of environmental politics, with a primary, though not exclusive, focus on the industrialised countries. First, it examines the evolution of environmental movements and parties. Second, it provides analysis of the making and implementation of public policy in the area of the environment at international, national and local levels. Third, it carries comment on ideas generated by the various environmental movements and organisations, and by individual theorists. Fourth, it aims to cover the international environmental issues which are of increasing salience.
