Globalization and the Environment. Capitalism, Ecology and Power

Globalization and the Environment critically explores the actors, politics and processes that govern the relationship between globalization and the environment. Taking key aspects of globalisation in turn– trade, production and finance – the book highlights the relations of power at work that determine whether globalization is managed in a sustainable way and on whose behalf. Each chapter looks in turn at the political ecology of these central pillars of the global economy, reviewing evidence ofits impact on diverse ecologies and societies, its governance – the political structures, institutions and policy making processes in place to manage this relationship – and finally efforts to contest and challenge these prevailing approaches. The book makes sense of the relationship between globalisation and the environment using a range of theoretical tools from different disciplines. This helps to place the debate about the compatibility between globalisation and sustainability in an explicitly political and historical context in which it is possible to appreciate the ‘nature’ of interests and power relations that privilege some ways of responding to environmental problems over others in a context of globalisation.

Peter F. Newell (* 3. August 1915 in Vancouver, British Columbia; † 17. November 2008 in Rancho Santa Fe, California) war ein kanadischer Basketballtrainer. Er trainierte zwischen 1946 und 1960 die Mannschaften dreier Universitäten: University of San Francisco (1946–50), Michigan State University (1950–54) und University of California, Berkeley (1954–60). Mit der University of San Francisco gewann Newell 1949 das National Invitation Tournament. Das Team der University of California führte er 1959 und 1960 ins NCAA-Finale, wobei 1959 auch der Titelgewinn gelang. 1960 trainierte Newell die US-Nationalmannschaft bei den Olympischen Spielen in Rom (mit Spielern wie Oscar Robertson und Jerry West), die souverän Gold gewann. Pete Newell ist einer von nur drei Basketballtrainern, die Titel bei jedem der drei vorgenannten Turniere erringen konnten.[1]
