  • Regimes in Southeast Asiaby Henriette Litta

    Springer 2011; US$ 59.95

    In the context of massive environmental problems in Southeast Asia, the countries in the region have decided -- at least in some instances -- to create regimes to solve these problems jointly.

  • Adaptation and Evolution in Marine Environments, Volume 1by Guido di Prisco; Cinzia Verde

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    The poles undergo climate changes exceeding those in the rest of the world in terms of their speed and extent, and have a key role in modulating the climate of the Earth. Ecosystems adapted to polar environments are likely to become vulnerable to climate changes. Their responses allow us to analyse and foresee the impact of changes at lower latitudes.... more...

    Royal Society of Chemistry 2002; US$ 56.00

    Few people today are unaware of the far-reaching effects of global environmental change, and it is now generally accepted that human activities are the root cause of the changes in climate.

  • Rethinking Environmental Historyby Alf Hornborg; J. R. McNeill; Joan Martinez-Alier

    AltaMira Press 2007; US$ 43.99

    This is the best overview we have of political ecology, which tries to link environmental change to political economy and social injustice.
