Review

'One of the most impressive environmental books ever written.' Ambassador Richard Benedick, US Negotiator to the Montreal Protocol and author of Ozone Diplomacy '[An] outstanding historical account.' European Environment 'The remarkable story of how all countries - rich and poor, capitalist and communist, North and South - joined together against a common enemy: environmental destruction.' Mostafa K Tolba, Under-Secretary-General, United Nations, and Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme, 1976-1992 'The strength of this book is its comprehensive character, written by two experts. The result is a book that is unique in its documentation and contains the most interesting insights.' International Journal of Sustainable Development 'The book is brought to life by personal perspectives. Here, some of the leading players - politicians, scientists, industrialists and environmentalists - give their own view of events.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'Sarma and Anderson's book is full of wonderful vignettes that demonstrate the creativity and dedication of government scientists and civil servants who worked for over a decade to create a workable global environmental management regime.' Nature

Format: Hardcover
As a student that is focusing my career on the issue of climate change, I found this book on ozone layer protection to be an extremely valuable resource. This book holds the general formula for how to deal with all global environmental concerns. Andersen and Sarma chronicle the way the world realized, rallied, fought, and in the end cooperated to save the world from impending disaster. The layout of the book makes it extremely accessible for focused readers- it designates chapters to tell the contributions of scientists, diplomats, businesspeople and engineers, media, and NGOs. The authors were deeply involved with all of these groups, enabling them to tell the inside story in each of these chapters. Their lessons are punctuated by exciting stories written by integral players in each of their fields. The reader will undoubtedly learn much by reading the chapter that relates most closely to him, and when he reads the entire book he'll find a story that is astonishing and inspiring. In asking Andersen and Sarma to write this book, the United Nations Environment Programme entrusted the right authors to portray their most impressive success story to date, and the result is a huge success.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book providers the reader with wonderful insights to the development and the Montreal Protocol and amendments. It is a carefully crafted and detailed book for those seeking to learn how this dynamic international environmntal regime was developed and operates today. For any reader interested in knowing how a successful international environmental treaty can be made to work, this is the book. I highly recommend it for any student of environmental or international law. The book is especially ensightful as to how science is a driver for international climate policy. The book may also serve as a primer to the onging nexus of ozone depletion and climate change politics and science.
