This book explains international action on climate change from the perspective of countries' domestic politics.
In the gloomy aftermath of the Copenhagen climate summit, there has been much talk of finding new ways to advance policy change at the national level. This skillfully edited and illuminating collection of national studies identifies the possibilities as well as the obstacles to pursuing policy change at this level of governance. I am certain it will meet the needs of students and scholars of international as well as comparative environmental politics and policy. --Andrew J. Jordan, Professor, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia "This book makes an important and distinctive contribution to the literature on comparative environmental policies and politics. It clearly and convincingly describes and explains the the policy approaches of the European Union, the United States, Russia, Japan, Canada, Australia, and China toward addressing the risks of global climate change. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in understanding the complex relationship between the domestic and international dimensions of climate change policies." --David Vogel, Haas School of Business, Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
