Paradoxes Of Democratisation: Environmental Politics In East Asia, Mary Alice Haddad Dec 2013

Paradoxes Of Democratisation: Environmental Politics In East Asia, Mary Alice Haddad

Mary Alice Haddad

This chapter examines environmental politics in four polities that run the full spectrum of political regimes: mainland China (authoritarian), South Korea and Taiwan (newly democratic), and Japan (mature democracy). The chapter argues that variation in environmental politics in each place resulted primarily from the timing of their environmental movements, with subsequent movements learning from predecessors and gaining increasing access to global NGO networks. Paradoxically, when environmental movements became linked to democratization movements (in South Korea and Taiwan), they also became linked to political parties, which hindered access to government policymaking when non-allied parties were in power.

Continuity And Change: A Late Holocene And Post Contact History Of Aboriginal Environmental Interaction And Vegetation Process From The Keep River Region, Northern Territory, Jennifer Atchison

Jennifer Atchison

Australian Aboriginal and hunter-gatherer impacts on the environment have been widely debated in anthropological and scientific circles. At one extreme hunter-gatherer impacts have been viewed as non-existent or unintentional, at the other they have been viewed as significant agents of extensive change. Wherever Aboriginal people are considered as agents of change, fire is considered to be the primary and most important method. The way in which vegetation responds to fire and other factors influences our perception of the nature and degree to which Aboriginal people live within, impact upon, manage or construct their environment. Non-equilibrium ecology provides a useful framework ...

Review Of The Ecological Revolution By John Bellamy Foster . Monthly Review Press, 2009. In Contemporary Sociology. Vol. 39, 4, Pp. 444-445, Paul Gellert

Paul K. Gellert

[Extract] John Bellamy Foster offers a dire picture of the ecological crisis facing us. He then uses a powerful set of tools to explain how capitalism’s logic of profit over people drives the crisis, and carefully explains, “why and how we should and can struggle for a more sustainable ecological and social order” (p.8). Building on the tradition of Raymond Williams, Ernst Bloch, Bertolt Brecht, and Rachel Carson, Foster intends his analysis of ecological crisis to lead not to despair but to a politics of hope aimed at concrete utopias. The book is a powerful contribution to public ...
