Environmental Conflict

Edited Volume

Diehl, Paul F.; & Nils Petter Gleditsch, eds, (2001) Environmental Conflict. Oxford.

This book explores the role of environmental degradation or scarcity in intrastate or interstate violent conflict and how cooperative efforts might forestall such undesirable consequences. By presenting cutting-edge conceptual and empirical research examining how environmental factors may influence group and state decisions to employ violence, it enhances understanding of the possibilities for future conflict and how to prevent it.
