“This is a comprehensive and very accessible, introductory textbook to Global Environmental Politics. It excels in that it nicely integrates Global Environmental Politics into broader International Relations arguments, while discussing the role of intergovernmental organizations and international cooperation for finding effective solutions to some of the most pressing environmental problems of our time.”
“The Global Environment is a strong and authoritative introductory text. The content is of the highest quality, written by an array of notable experts. The editors have done a fantastic job at arranging that multidisciplinary—and potentially unwieldy--content into a coherent framework. Readers will appreciate the clear prose.”
“I very much appreciate the comparative case study between Montreal and climate change. The regime theory approach is also very useful, especially for my non-IR majors.”
Its topics add a new point of view for my courses, so I try to include in my schedule.
