Editorial Reviews

Review

The field of global environmental politics has been waiting for this book. The chapters show the value of taking a theoretically rigorous comparative approach to pressing environmental questions of the day, including the prospects for greening the state, opportunities for and constraints on social mobilization, the dynamics of multi-level governance, and the relative effectiveness of environmental policies. Comparative Environmental Politics is a case of superb collaborative scholarship.

(Ken Conca, Professor of International Relations, American University School of International Service)

An ambitious and pioneering effort to integrate the study of environmental policy into the sub-field of comparative politics. Its informative essays demonstrate the wide range of contemporary scholarship on comparative dimensions of environmental politics.

(David Vogel, Solomon P. Lee Professor of Business and Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley)

Comparative analysis may be one of the most important and promising areas for further enriching our understanding of environmental politics and policy. This book by Stacy VanDeveer and Paul Steinberg is one of the most important contributions to this field in recent years.

(Barry G. Rabe, Arthur Thurnau Professor, Gerald Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan)

Comparative Environmental Politics is a welcome scholarly contribution to an emerging, vital field of study. Editors Steinberg and VanDeveer have produced an intelligent compilation of explorations into theory and practice…[The book] is timely and groundbreaking and combines high scholarship with the advantages of the comparative method to advance understanding of environmental politics.

(A. R. Brunello, Choice)

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was required reading for a master's course I took. It is very detailed and dense reading. The course was taught by a man that worked with one of the authors and spent 15 years in DC working on international environmental politics, and even he has a hard time teaching the course and navigating the text. It's a very difficult subject to tackle and unless you have a lot of experience I wouldn't recommend this book unless you really want to do a deep dive into international environmental policy.
