RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 52876430 LA English T1 Liberation ecologies : environment, development, social movements A1 Peet, Richard., Watts, Michael,, PB Routledge PP London; New York YR 2004 SN 0415312353 9780415312356 0415312361 9780415312363 AB "At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the environment and the future of development continue to be issues of crucial importance. Most explanations of environmental crisis emphasize the role of population growth, thus focusing their attention on the poor. By comparison, Peet and Watts' innovative book elaborates a political-economic explanation drawing from the most recent advances in social theory. This new edition has been extensively revised to reflect recent changes in debates over the real definitions of 'development' and 'environment', and contains nine completely new chapters."--Publisher description.
