Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book focuses on the attempts to "green" economies in advanced industrial societies, from the early debates of the 1970s through the new approach which has emerged in this decade. The essence of this approach, encapsulated in the phrase, "ecological modernisation," is that giving more attention to the environment enhaces economic growth because increased environmental protection creates conditions that are conducive to long-term growth. Tackling pollution and steering resources towards improving environmental conditions thus provides a stepping stone to a different kind of economic growth. The book draws from original research to analyze ecological modernisation, its nature and the extent of its impact. Linking empirical work with the theoretical, three additional chapters which look at the connections to modernity, the use of economic instruments, and models of state/market relations as seen from different schools of political thought.

Book News Annotation:

Europeans and Australians in a number of disciplines explore the movement in the early years of both the 1980s and 1990s to modernize industry along ecological lines and so create a window to a different kind of economic growth. Among their topics are ecotaxes on the Belgian agenda, a British perspective on the green movement, finding patterns in the mosaic of case studies, and an assessment of ten years of government participation by the German Green Party.
