Book Review: A Research Agenda for Environmental Geopolitics

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


Shannon O’Lear has compiled an interesting collection of chapters under the rubric A Research Agenda for Environmental Geopolitics. In reference to this title, O’Lear denotes environmental geopolitics as a sub-discipline born from Political Geography, apt in examining “how spatial agendas from different political vantage points draw upon environmental concerns and objectives to justify actions or inactions” (2). In essence, the collection addresses classic geographic concerns relating to human uses for the environment, and how these uses and impacts are framed and contested by different stakeholders. It includes a selection of interesting industry and country-specific case studies which will pique the interest of researchers and students alike.
