The Political Economy of Nature draws extensively on current insights from sociology, ecology, economics, and earth science. Robert Boardman pools these diverse resources to argue that the investigation of environmental issues raises complex theoretical questions, which can only be answered through more sustained links between the natural and social sciences. With global issues becoming an increasingly vital part of environmental debate, Boradman shows how understanding of ecological problems can be increased in both International Relations and International Political Economy.

Author Biography: Robert Boardman is McCulloch Professor of Political Science, Dalhousie University, Canada.
