Review


Gerner Innovative Teaching Award


"Revealing the hidden architecture of rules that must be changed to protect our planet, Steinberg offers a fresh perspective on how to achieve a sustainable future. Who Rules the Earth? will be a source of inspiration for anyone who wonders what more we can do to overcome our most daunting
environmental challenges." -Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.


"Paul Steinberg provides profound insights into how societies function and why this matters for the health of the planet. After reading this book, you will not view the world in the same way again." -Carlos Manuel Rodríguez, Minister of Environment and Energy for Costa Rica, 2002-2006, and Vice
President, Center for Environment and Peace, Conservation International


"This book makes a fascinating contribution to understanding the forces that shape our world." -Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change


"I was genuinely moved by this book. Steinberg goes where few scholars have dared, taking an incredibly rich research literature on global environmental governance and distilling practical insights that, instead of just making us feel good about ourselves, might actually help us solve our toughest
environmental problems. I am going to make this required reading not only for my students, but also my children." -Ben Cashore, Professor of Environmental Governance & Political Science, Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies


"Steinberg masterfully 'skims the cream' from the best social science research to argue that environmental reformers must focus their energies on changing institutions, and suggests concrete ways in which to accomplish this ambitious goal. A great read!" -Lisa L. Martin, Professor of Political
Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison


"Steinberg does an excellent job of drawing together existing research to offer a coherent, accessible argument about how it applies to the current ecological problem...Overall, Who Rules the Earth? offers a clear argument, firm grounding in research, and practical guidance for those who want to
have a voice in shaping the rules that we live by" --Gerda Kits, Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith
