(p. v) Acknowledgments

First and foremost, we thank the collective wisdom of the participants in the environmental political theory workshop, held in Portland, Oregon, in March of 2012. More than 50 scholars there brainstormed the themes and contours of a handbook on this topic, and ensured a breadth of understanding that no single editor or editorial team could have matched.

Second, we thank Sam Gomes. Now a graduate of Humboldt State University with a major in philosophy, Sam reviewed and edited every chapter for consistency with Oxford’s editorial standards, created systems to track the progress of all chapters through the revision process, and generally gave us the confidence that nothing was slipping through the cracks in the final stages of the unwieldy process of bringing this Handbook to completion.

Third, we thank Dominic Byatt and the entire team at Oxford University Press for supporting this project and shepherding the manuscript from proposal through to the final page proofs.

Finally, we thank each other. Some had suggested to us that four co-editors might become more cumbersome than helpful, but our experience proved otherwise. The range of our academic interests and skills proved complementary, and as a team we’ve been able to keep the Handbook moving forward whenever one or more of us faced professional or personal obstacles. Overall, it has been an incredibly productive, collaborative, and engaging partnership from which we have each learned and grown. (p. vi)
