Editorial Reviews

Review


"Parson integrates science, technology and politics in an account that breaks new ground, especially about the role of scientific assessments and the operation of institutions for adaptive management. Anyone teaching or writing about international environmental regimes needs to read this book."---Robert O. Keohane, James B. Duke Professor of Political Science, Duke University


"Parson has written an important and original book. His detailed exposition of science and politics makes this authoritative treatment of the ozone issue one that will engage scientists and social scientists alike. It is subtly argued, well documented, and clear. More importantly, it will serve as a guide to global cooperation on other environmental issues."---Mario J. Molina, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry


"Parson documents the ozone layer story in great detail...His treatment in comprehensive, explaining clearly and in great detail the complexities of science, technology, and politics of the issue. The book will be of great interest to environmental scientists, policy makers, and students."--Wildlife Activist
