Set at the intersection of political theory and environmental politics, yet with broad engagement across the environmental social sciences and humanities, The Oxford Handbook of Environmental Political Theory, defines, illustrates, and challenges the field of environmental political theory(EPT).Featuring contributions from distinguished political scientists working in this field, this volume addresses canonical theorists and contemporary environmental problems with a diversity of theoretical approaches. The initial volume focuses on EPT as a field of inquiry, engaging both traditions ofpolitical thought and the academy. In the second section, the handbook explores conceptualizations of nature and the environment, as well as the nature of political subjects, communities, and boundaries within our environments. A third section addresses the values that motivate environmentaltheorists - including justice, responsibility, rights, limits, and flourishing - and the potential conflicts that can emerge within, between, and against these ideals. The final section examines the primary structures that constrain or enable the achievement of environmental ends, as well astheorizations of environmental movements, citizenship, and the potential for on-going environmental action and change.
Teena Gabrielson is Associate Professor of Political Science and teaches political theory at the University of Wyoming. Her work on environmental citizenship, justice, and toxics discourse has been published widely in distinguished scholarly journals such as Environmental Politics, Theory and Event, and Citizenship Studies.
