"Conca and Dabelko have produced a volume that stimulates and challenges. The diverse views represented in the volume challenge orthodox thinking, making for stimulating reading and class discussion . . . It is essential reading to understanding the dynamics shaping international environmental law and institutions now and in the foreseeable future."
Carl Bruch, Environmental Law Institute

"Green Planet Blues remains the only indispensable global environmental politics reader. This is a book that has stood the test of time, and it remains an invaluable guide to past and present debates in global environmental politics. It is notable for its clear introduction, concise chapters, and strong representation of voices from the South, and this makes it a book for globally minded students everywhere."
Jon Barnett, University of Melbourne, Australia
