"Every now and then, a book appears that bridges solitudes. Environmental Change and Globalization is such a book, bridging the thinking on two dominant processes of our time, globalization (greater economic, political and cultural integration across nations) and global environmental change (such as climate change). The result is a balanced and insightful analysis with some surprising conclusions." --Fikret Berkes, Professor and Canada Research Chair, Natural Resources Institute, University of Manitoba"This book provides a powerful approach for understanding how global economic and environmental changes intersect to create vulnerabilities, alter opportunities and affect livelihoods and landscapes in different regions of the world. It provides a great framework for understanding the human dimensions of environmental changes such as global warming and for analysing how environmental change intersects with larger structures of economic and political development."--Diana Liverman, Professor and Director, Environmental Change Institute, Oxford University Centre for the Environment"In this timely volume, Leichenko and O'Brien provide a coherent framework for unraveling the complex interactions of the two defining processes of our era: global environmental change and globalization. Through numerous empirical examples, they document the often adverse and inequitable outcomes that emerge through the spatial and temporal interaction of these global drivers. Environmental Change and Globalization is not, however, gloomy reading. Leichenko and O'Brien provide insights on how opportunity emerges from complexity, arguing that from the synergies of global change there may be new avenues for ensuring human security." -Hallie Eakin, Department of Geography, UCSB, author of Weathering Risk in Rural Mexico: Climatic, Institutional, And Economic Change"Global environmental change and globalization are the two most important forces reshaping our world.

Environmental Change and Globalization: Double Exposures explores the connections between two of the most transformative processes of the twenty-first century: global environmental change and globalization. In the book, Leichenko and O'Brien present a conceptual framework for analyzing the interactions between these two processes, and they illustrate, through case studies, how these interactions create situations of "double exposure."
Drawing upon prominent recent and current environmental events — Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, recurring droughts in India, and the melting of the Arctic ice sheet — the case studies each demonstrate a different pathway of interaction between globalization and environmental change. Through exploration of these pathways of double exposure, the book also shows how broader human security concerns including growing inequalities, growing vulnerabilities, and unsustainable rates of development are integrally connected to both processes of global change. The double exposure framework not only sheds light on the challenges raised by these processes, but also reveals possibilities for using the interactions to generate positive opportunities for action.
The book ultimately challenges the ways that environmental change and globalization are currently viewed and addressed, revealing new openings for creating integrated responses. By drawing attention to double exposure, the book shows how it can create new types of synergies that enhance human security.
