Featuring a strong line-up of respected Canadian scholars and with an interdisciplinary flavour, this integrated collection of a dozen case studies conveys the need for both local and global analysis of environmental problems in the search for solutions and viable policy options.

The topics addressed are wide-ranging, but together represent the most critical environmental policy issues of our time, and offer an overview of the challenges — and opportunities — facing Canadians in the early 21st century.
