An examination of the diverse implications of the idea of global identity, which brings a sociological focus to environmental issues, whilst testing and extending globalization theory. It explains the complex interrelation between environmentalism and globalization and it investigates globalization in the contested policy arena of the environment. The book also contends that mutual suspicion and fragmentation are the outcomes of competing visions of the globe's needs, and looks critically at how the "globality" of global issues is constructed and negotiated.
