Editorial Reviews


Bodansky offers a sweeping review of the theory and practice of environmental protection at the global scale. Simply written and yet deeply insightful, the book explains the forces, actors, and processes that determine how international environmental rules and norms emerge and whether they get implemented. Essential reading for legal scholars and practitioners alike. (Daniel C. Esty, Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy, Yale University)

The Art and Craft of International Environmental Law is an accessible, yet sophisticated, review of legal and institutional efforts to address global environmental problems. It can be read with profit by anyone interested in understanding this important and rapidly changing field. (Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University)

Other books tell you what international environmental law is. This book does that and more. It helps the reader understand why international environmental law is needed, how it develops and is implemented, and whether it can be enforced to make a real difference. Written in plain English by one of the world's leading experts in the field, this book should be read by anyone involved in environmental policy and negotiations--and anyone who wants to understand the means by which we will decide the fate of the planet. (Scott Barrett, Lenfest-Earth Institute Professor of Natural Resource Economics, Columbia University)

In a clear and compelling overview, Bodansky renders the most complex legal and political theory comprehensible, and integrates the scholarly literature with relevant empirical material to explain the successes and failures of international law in protecting the global environment. It was the perfect book for my advanced undergraduate course in international environmental law, and the students loved it. (Elizabeth R. DeSombre, Wellesley College)

'Art and Craft' is an invaluable resource for anyone trying to grasp how the environmental policy world works. From who the key actors are to what they do, how they do it, and what impact they have, Bodansky paints a comprehensive picture while giving a clear voice to key insights and nuances that will ring true for anyone who has made a career watching or working on these issues. (Daniel Rochberg, former negotiator, U.S. Department of State and Instructor, Emory University)

Can international environmental law really deliver? Professor Bodansky provides a crisp, clear and compelling narrative to address that most fundamental of questions, and does so with an elegance for which scholars, activists and policymakers should be very grateful. (Philippe Sands, QC, University College London)
