This book focuses on the concepts of environmental justice and global citizenship from a number of different disciplinary perspectives with the intention of promoting at the very least some interdisciplinary understandings. Initially presented as papers at an interdisciplinary conference on the themes of environmental justice and global citizenship in Copenhagen in February 2002, the chapters in this volume were chosen by election by those attending the conference. They represent the emergent differences of opinion and glimmers of agreement in the conference as discussions of environmental justice and global citizenship inevitably led to considerations of sustainability and Agenda 21. Some degree of agreement did emerge around the idea of seeing sustainability as a process rather than a predetermined outcome. There was also a shared interest in the pedagogy of educating students in and about sustainability. This volume has been divided into disciplinary or thematically based sections but the purpose of the introductory chapter is to draw links and connections between different papers and different themes in the volume.

Ideologies legitimize politics, outline basic values, socialize individuals, facilitate communication, and mobilize people - in short, their study makes for a great entry into the study of political theory and the discipline of political science. A source both of stability and instability, concord and conflict, the ideologies explored in this anthology show the dynamics of politics through the study of ideas. With 18 of 49 selections new to this edition, Dogmas and Dreams signals a renewed emphasis on political ideologies showing how public discourse - for better or for worse - reflects the complexity and chaos of an increasingly global world. With Nancy Love's concise and insightful introductions, original selections by influential thinkers, challenge students to question their political convictions and thus discover and explore their own political beliefs.

"This CLI policy paper argues that we will not be able to recalibrate the law of humans with the laws of nature unless we explicitly recognize the accountability of one generation to the next. Carbon buildup in our atmosphere occurs over generations and so requires new legal principles that recognize this intergenerational connection among human socieities. We must develop new legal principles to articulate the rights and corresponding duties that underpin intergenerational equity, and develop new ways to use law to translate ethical norms into practice."--p.14
