David Toke adapts the green critique of the external costs of economic growth to examine the links between stress, social division and excessive competition that are associated with the neo-liberal discourse. Discourse analysis is used in a critical manner to examine the way that environmental issues are shaped. The book challenges established notions of the role of scientists, environmental groups and the widely presumed centrality of rational choice analysis in political science is questioned.
