Global Environmental Politics
Avalon Publishing, Sep 21, 2000 - Political Science - 286 pages
When Global Environmental Politics was first published, the environment was just emerging as a pivotal issue in traditional international relations. Today, the environment is considered to be a central topic to discussions of political economy and the relationship between foreign and domestic policy—and so much has changed that more than half of the book has been revised. With a new case study on fisheries, a new chapter on improving compliance with international environmental regimes and a new section on trade and environment, this classic work is more complete and up-to-date than any survey of international environmental politics on the market. In addition to providing a concise yet comprehensive overview of global environmental issues, the authors have worked to contextualize key topics such as the 1992 Earth Summit, the Kyoto Protocol, international forest policy, and the trade and environment nexus. Environmental concerns from global warming to ozone depletion to whaling are seen as challenges to transnational relations, with governments, NGOs, IGOs, and MNCs all involved in the multilateral interaction that is necessary to solve growing global environmental politics.
