Nicole Detraz is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Memphis
"Inequality and discrimination are central to why the global
environmental crisis is escalating. Nicole Detraz's trailblazing
book reveals how gender analysis offers essential insights into why
the problems of consumption, environmental insecurity, and
unsustainable development persist, as well as why government and
corporate policies so often cause even greater injustice."
Peter Dauvergne, University of British Columbia
"Detraz's book shows how our understanding of environmental issues is enhanced by considering the particular experiences of women and men in the face of environmental degradation. The analysis is both straightforward - accessible to a beginner - and sophisticated, tracing how different feminisms build on the core concepts of sustainability and justice to transform familiar debates in global environmental politics."
Kathryn Hochstetler, University of Waterloo
"A thorough, accessible and succinct overview of the debates to date. This book is extremely helpful in laying out the field of GEP...as well as in achieving its specific aim to develop analytical connections between gender and environment. The clarity and comprehensiveness of the overviews are very useful for educators and learners alike."
