`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.' David Pearce, UCL and Imperial College, London - Times Higher Education Supplement 24/10/2003
