'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
