About the Authors
  • Despite a growing interest in critical social and political studies of climate change, the field remains fragmented and diffuse. This is the first volume to collect this body of scholarship, providing a key reference point in the growing debate about climate change across the social sciences. The book provides a new set of insights into the ways in which climate change is creating new forms of social order, and the ways in which they are structured through the workings of rationality, power and politics. Governing the Climate is invaluable for three main audiences: social science researchers and advanced students in the field of climate change; the wider research community interested in global environmental politics and global environmental governance; and policy makers and researchers concerned more broadly with environmental politics at international, national and local levels.

    • Brings new perspectives on significant areas of climate governance, such as carbon markets, forests, and domestic energy consumption
    • Positions critical social and political studies of climate change in relation to other literatures (regime theory, global governance) which are more often deployed in this field of study
    • Offers new insight into the ways in which climate change is creating new forms of social order
