Editorial Reviews


"Thomas Brewer is one of the world's leading experts on the political economy of international trade and related policies. Now, in this new book, he brings his calm, analytical and typically balanced approach to an important and timely issue, the political economy of global climate change policy in the United States. Professor Brewer's assessment merits a careful look by scholars and practitioners alike."
Robert N. Stavins, Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

"Brewer's book fills a big gap in the literature about climate change. It is a thoughtful, thorough and balanced account of the science, economics, technology and politics of climate policy in the US and globally. And it is clear and very easy to read. For college and graduate students, this book is the place to start. It would be an excellent text for a course on climate change - the foundation for robust discussion, debate and research. The book also provides an excellent place for fresh thinking about how to address climate change - which is badly needed these days as the Kyoto FCCC process seems to have stalled. Everyone can learn something important from this book."
Dewitt John, Thomas Shannon Distinguished Lecturer in Environmental Studies, Bowdoin College

"This book provides a much needed deeper insight into the economics and politics of decision making by a diversity of actors in the US in relation to climate change. It tries to explain, both to the domestic and international audience, why the US has taken a fairly isolated position for such a long time in the global climate governance arena. With its clear and simple communication style and supported by detailed appendices, this book will be very useful for policy-makers and students of climate economics." Joyeeta Gupta, University of Amsterdam

"Brewer vividly describes past efforts to forge ahead on environmental and climate policy, providing a compelling historical backdrop for today's climate policy battles. And for students and professionals who want to probe even deeper, Brewer offers a valuable list of resources at the end of each chapter."
Vicki Arroyo, Executive Director, Georgetown Climate Center; Professor from Practice, and Environmental Law Program Director, Georgetown Law

Book Description

Written for audiences both outside and within the United States, this accessible book addresses the widespread desire to better understand how climate change issues are addressed in the US by providing an unparalleled analysis of the political and economic factors that shape its responses to climate change.
