This is an introduction to the volume as a whole. The editors, Peter F. Cannavò and Joseph H. Lane Jr., summarize the origins and history of environmental political theory and discuss the need for a volume like Engaging Nature and how this book goes beyond past studies of environmental perspectives in the political theory canon. The editors present their scholarly approach in choosing the particular theorists to profile, discuss the intended audience for the book, and summarize the individual essays. They also highlight the need for academics to go beyond the Western political theory tradition and develop more scholarship in comparative environmental political theory.

Keywords:   environmental political theory, political theory, environmentalism, green movement, nature and politics, comparative political theory
