have written a number of chapters and articles over
the years that relate directly to matters of environmental
security and more generally to debates about security
after the cold war. My book on the topic, simply called
Environmental Security is published by the
of Minnesota Press.
My second book on the topic, titled Security and Environmental Change was published in 2009 by Polity Press in Cambridge.
