'This volume presents a comprehensive account of the links between securitisation theory and the debate about environmental threats, recent American policy and the ethics of security. A must-read for foreign and security policy scholars interested in the Clinton and Bush administrations' formulation of international environmental governance.' Simon Dalby, Carleton University, and author of Security and Environmental Change
'Written with clarity and confidence, Floyd's analysis of the Clinton administration's attempt to institutionalize environmental security in the 1990s brings a welcome European perspective to a period of dramatic change in US national security policy. This work will be of great interest to policymakers as well as scholars and students.' Richard Matthew, University of California, Irvine
'Overall, Floyd successfully highlights some key problems with securitisation theory and goes on to rectify them through a rich empirical analysis of US environmental security policy backed up by interview with a number of key actors. she provides an improved and more nuanced understanding of securitisation in the environmental sector ... the book is a well-written and interesting contribution both to securitisation studies and to environmental policy and security.' Jonna Nyman, Political Studies Review
