The author focuses on ecological and technological questions of risk, and their sociological and political implications- in doing so he discusses and answers some of the criticisms provoked by his earlier and much cited work on risk society.

He argues that we now have an earth politics which we did not have some years ago, and that it can be understood in terms of the dynamics and contradictions of a world risk society. It poses questions such as: What is the environment? What is nature? What is wilderness? What is human? Questions which have to be reposed and reconsidered in a transnational setting, even if the answers are elusive.
