This text redefines the political, ethical and legal relationships between the environment and human rights. Through a focus on the operational dynamics of social power, it details how global capitalism subjugates concerns of human security and environmental protection to the values of allocative efficiency and economic growth.;The capacity of social power to construct ethical norms and to determine the efficacy of law is examined to explain how ethical and legal concepts have been selectively applied to accommodate existing patterns of production, consumption and exchange that cause environmental degradation and human rights violations. By looking at how environmental values have been systematically excluded from the human rights discourse, the book claims that human rights politics and law has been constructed on double standards to accommodate the destructive forces of capitalism.
