Editorial Reviews

Review

"This two-volume analysis of three environmental issues in ten countries over several decades represents an incredible achievement of collaborative scholarship. Out of it has emerged the most detailed analysis of social learning--changes in people's understanding of each issue's causes, impacts, and policy options--and the role of scientists, the media, governmental institutions, and interest groups in creating these changes. This is clearly a tour de force in the policy learning literature."--Paul Sabatier, Department of Environmental Science and Policy, University of California, Davis



"...important works of scholarship [that] will prove to be very valuable additions to our body of environmental management knowledge." Robert John Klancko Environmental Practice



"A landmark achievement. Learning to Manage Global Environmental Risks is the best, most comprehensive, and most in-depth analysis of humanity's first steps in the process of learning how to manage global environmental change. Theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich, this study sets the standard for all future multidisciplinary scientific research on the complex interaction between knowledge, power, society, and the global environment."--Emanuel Adler, Department of International Relations, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem



"...very valuable additions to our body of environmental management knowledge." Robert John Klancko Environmental Practice



"Learning to Manage Global Environmental Risks is an impressively detailed analysis of policy change, across many countries and through global institutions, on three key environmental issues. It will stand as a monument to highly collaborative interdisciplinary research in the social sciences."--Robert O. Keohane, James B. Duke Professor of Political Science, Duke University



"This overview of how some of the most critical regional and global problems have been handled internationally and in selected nations is illuminating reading. Much can be learned from it by the whole spectrum of actors, from policy makers to expert environmental scientists."--Paul Crutzen, Atmospheric Chemistry Division, Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Germany



"This book is an extremely valuable reference for scientists like myself who become involved with broad assessments of environmental problems and thus require appropriate historical, social, and political perspectives that transcend the natural sciences."--Mario Molina, Institute Professor, MIT, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (1995)
