Major environmental degradation is a serious problem for China as the country's economy continues to grow at a phenomenal pace. In recent years environmental organisations have begun to emerge in China, and in some cases have had remarkable success in affecting policies which would have had significant adverse impacts on the environment. This book, based on extensive original research, adopts a multi-disciplinary research approach to examine environmental activism in China, focusing on four cities. It analyses the nature, characteristics, strategies, organizational modes and influence of what could be labeled a Chinese environmental movement in-the-making. In particular, this volume highlights the specificities of Chinese environmental activism in an increasingly globalizing world, along with a comparison to the environmental movement in Western Europe and North America.

Organized across national boundaries and with millions of supporters worldwide, transnational environmental activist groups such as Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund, and Friends of the Earth play a central role in the way the world addresses environmental issues. This book provides the most systematic and theoretically informed study to date of the strategies these organizations use to advance global environmental protection. Based on case studies of three transnational groups, it argues that in addition to lobbying governments, activists operate within and across societies to effect widespread change. They work through transnational social, economic, and cultural networks to alter corporate practices, educate vast numbers of people, pressure multilateral development banks, and shift standards of good conduct. Wapner argues that because this activity takes place outside the formal arena of inter-state politics, environmental activists practice "world civic politics"; they politicize global civil society. The theoretical import of this book is to bring the practice of world civic politics into sharp relief and generalize its significance beyond environmental affairs to explain the efforts of all NGOs in world politics.

This text focuses on three different groups of civil activists protesting against infrastructure installations, and on their understanding of science. The role of science is revealed as an ambivalent one for environmental activism, and it is also shown to pose problems for anthropology: in looking at environmental activism as a social commitment, meaningful commentary must combine both social and scientific perspectives.

There has been an increasing public, and academic, interest in questions of political resistance in the social sciences. Scholarly engagement with such questions too often relies on a taken-for-granted set of theoretical assumptions, grounded in familiar perspectives, against which practices of resistance are then read, and judged, in a binary manner. There is an urgent need for a novel innovative theoretical approach that is able to think outside the box of established academic disciplines and theoretical schools of thought. This book offers this corrective through the lens of environmental activism. Using the work of Foucault and Deleuze in novel ways, it identifies a political radicalism that remains invisible for those radical theorists who base their analysis on given theoretical schemas.

The dissertation also examines how the women have mobilized across borders of gender, race, class and nationality through their work with the Alliance for International Reforestation (AIR), and in doing so, have challenged the organization to develop an awareness of the links between gender, race, and class in its own environmental work. The dissertation concludes by arguing for the importance of recognizing the links between gender, race, class, and the environment, and offers suggestions for how this project and the stories of indigenous women and AIR might inform feminist and ecofeminist theory and research; environmental activist work; and environmental policy.
