    This International Handbook unites many of the world’s leading scholars of political ecology, while also introducing new and less heard voices from that community. While its international lineage is a long one, the field’s present form notably dates from the 1970s through the 1990s, when debates over politics, power, class, the state, gender and North–South relations helped to crystallize thinking in political ecology. As the size of the political ecology community as well as its global reach (both what is studied and who does the studying) have continued to expand, those debates have persisted and been joined by new ones.

    Why are the Third World’s environmental problems getting worse even though they are receiving unprecedented attention from policy makers and the media? Can these problems ever be solved through incremental policy changes or is their magnitude an indication of the need for a more radical approach? What are the political and economic obstacles to the resolution of the Third World’s environmental problems and how might they be overcome? These questions illustrate the need for an approach that integrates political, economic and ecological issues as the basis for an effective response to contemporary environmental problems.
