Editorial Reviews


`Every now and again, a treatise appears that alters the way we see events. Scott Barrett's Environment and Statecraft is one such work. The book, more than a decade in preperation, is a craft of inventiveness, meticulous research, intellectual insight and surprise. Barrett's book is probably one of the most important publications in the past few decades on global environmental problems. For students of politics, economics and the environment, and for negotitators and politicians, this book is to be carried around like a Bible. If I had written it, I would retire content that I had made a real difference.' Times Higher Education Supplement

Format: Paperback
Simply put, this is the best and most accessible source available on international environmental agreements.The book is rigorously based on game theory, economics, diplomacy, and political science and international relations, but also includes many real-world examples, and lessons learned from these examples. The examples come from virtually all types of environmental and natural resource industries. The book develops clear principles and guidelines for what works and what does not.
