Authorities in the fields of environmental and international law and policy, political science, environmental technology and public administration compare and contrast the ways in which the United States and the European Union handle similar environmental issues in this book. The contributors analyze the influence of culture and history on the way apparently "similar" developed democracies handle the same problems. They examine the centre-state relationship as it applies to EU member countries in contrast to states within the United States, and they look at the challenge of transboundary, international and global environmental problems, and how these relate to the still-emerging geopolitical reconfigurations involved in such structures as NAFTA and the EU. They examine how transnational resources are handled in the North American and EU contexts.
