Each chapter of the text uses a specific case study to address a specific issue.

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.
