About this book

Tackles environmental management from the perspectices, concepts and values of environmental security. A result of a joint US-Russian project the focus is on those issues and concerns that are likely to destabilize normal relations between nations. The book focuses on eight specific concerns: hazardous materials transport, sea-level rise, land based marine pollution, Arctic Ocean sensitivities, nuclear contamination, North Pacific fisheries depletion, the Southern Ocean and Antarctica and the international law of the sea.

Steiner uncovers delightful layer after layer of insight into the intertwining arms of nature and people - from the foreword
