This wide-ranging and path-breaking collection of essays on China’s environmental crisis takes a new approach, transcending the typical “gloom and doom” media and scholarly report on China’s environmental crisis, to address how the Chinese political and social systems were impacted and how they responded, or should respond, to the ecological challenges confronting China. Therefore, this collection provides innovative analyses about the impacts and responses—both domestically and globally—of China’s political and social systems encompassing its social values, ameliorative, and preventative policies. It leaves us with such an important question to ponder: What social action will be needed in the near- and long-term future in order to avoid environmental disaster as well as to achieve environmental sustainability and social justice for the long term in China?

About the Author:

Joel Jay Kassiola is Dean of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University. He received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the Political Philosophy Program at Princeton University. His research program after several publications in various political theory themes turned to the intersection of the environmental crisis, political theory and modernity about 30 years ago. He published one of the first books in the emerging field of environmental political theory in 1990: The Death of Industrial Civilization, and more recently, edited Explorations in Environmental Political Theory (2003). He has published several articles on the nature of environmental political theory and environmental ethics. His most recent research has turned to China’s political thought and development pertaining to green political theory, environmental policy, and China’s development. His article titled “The Dilemma of Western Industrial Civilization and China’s Path in the 21st Century” is published in Challenges Facing Chinese Political Development (2007).

Sujian Guo is Professor in the Department of Political Science and Director of Center for U.S.-China Policy Studies at San Francisco State University.

(2000).

Review:

“The authors cover a wide span of issues ranging from the analysis of current ecological conditions (such as desertification, biodiversity, and food security, all closely interlinked to global climate change) to the role of environmental NGOs and social change caused by environmental issues and governance. Going beyond a pure scientific description of environmental issues, the book provides valuable insights in their possible reasons and ways out and shows the interdependencies of economic growth, environmental degradation, and their repercussions on the Chinese society. Economic welfare--Environmental Kuznets Curve-like--provides for an increase of environmental consciousness in the Chinese society which, for example, is reflected in an increasing number of environmental NGOs with growing influence dealing with issues such as local pollution, safety standards, biodiversity, desertification, and other issues. Broad environmental goals such as a green Chinese society and environmental sustainability (or the Chinese equivalent: a harmonious society) are getting higher on the political agenda on the central level and even locally. On the side, China on an international climate negotiation level is willing to take greater responsibilities. Confucian values or a Chinese way might be the only way out for China to cope with the local, regional, and even global environmental issues in an appropriate way which also can be understood by the Chinese society. In this book many deep thoughts on many urgent questions can be found. Containing important insights into China’s most challenging environmental issues, this book is a must for environmental policy analysts.”--Andreas Oberheitmann, International Director, Research Center for International Environmental Policy, Tsinghua University
