Global Environmental Problems: Causes, Consequences, and Potential Solutions provides an overview of the main environmental problems facing today's world. While many books on the environment place a heavy emphasis on political actors, processes, and institutions, Global Environmental Problems highlights not only environmental actors, but the causes of and potential solutions to environmental crises.

Each chapter of the text uses a specific case study to address a specific issue. These include wildlife depletion, tropical deforestation, marine fisheries depletion, climate change, water pollution and shortages, and toxic waste. Students will also learn about less familiar, but critical issues such as dry land deforestation, the environmental impacts of agriculture, desertification, and population and urbanization.

Global Environmental Problems is well suited to courses on environmental policy. The book uses an accessible, interdisciplinary approach, which also makes it appropriate for courses on environmental history, conservation, and international relations. In addition, Global Environmental Problems will be of interest to the general reader who cares about the environment and the problems facing it.
