The Global Casino is a compelling introduction to environmental issues which
links the physical environment to its political, social and economic contexts.
Case studies from around the globe are used to illustrate key environmental
issues, from global warming and deforestation to natural hazards and soil
erosion. The book highlights the underlying causes behind environmental
problems, including human actions and emphasises the potential for solutions.
In line with contemporary international trends, emphasis is placed on the
critical concept of sustainable development. This new edition has been
thoroughly revised and updated, with the introduction of new illustrative
material and up-to-the-minute case studies on topics such as endangered
deep-sea species, the global uptake of unleaded petrol, geothermal energy in
Iceland, genocide in Rwanda and the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004. Particularly
useful features for students include points for discussion at the end of each
chapter as well as a comprehensive glossary. The lists of key readings and
websites, again linked specifically to the content of each chapter, have been
fully updated and expanded. The Global Casino is the essential course companion
for students of the environment, geography, earth sciences and development
