About this book

Seeks to explain what "science" and "politics" are in the context of environmental policymaking and how the interplayof science and politics influences international environmental policy.

Neil Harrison and Gary Bryner's edited book offers important insights into the interrelationships between science and politics concerning critical international environmental issues. The contributors address a wide variety of environmental policy problems and provide useful data and in-depth explanations about the reciprocal connections that exist between science and environmental policy. Environmental studies and policy students and international environmental politics and policy researchers will find the book extremely valuable and instructive.--Sheldon Kamieniecki
