The Politics of the Earth: Environmental Discourses,Third Edition, provides an accessible introduction to environmental politics by examining the ways in which people use language to discuss environmental issues. Leading scholar John S.

An engaging writing style and helpful boxed material make this complex subject more understandable to students.
