About this book

Although discussions about the global environment are now a daily occurrence – from companies touting energy-saving products to politicians debating how to best address the issue of climate change and other environmental concerns – it remains a topic plagued by misinformation and ideologically skewed arguments. For more than twenty years, Global Environmental Politics has provided an up-to-date, accurate, and unbiased introduction to the world's most pressing environmental issues, and this new edition continues the tradition.

With new material on the latest international environmental regimes, the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development, the challenges of regime implementation, and the impact of the global economic crises on the global environment, the authors offer a comprehensive overview of the environment and international politics. It is vital reading for anyone wishing to understand the current state of the field and to make informed decisions about which policies might best safeguard our environment for the future.

"This classic book, now in its sixth edition, presents an up-to-date, accessible and engaging entry into the ever-evolving world of global environmental politics, and Chasek, Downie and Brown effectively provide insights into cross-cutting themes being wrestled with by actors in global environmental politics today. An ideal text for any introductory course on global environmental policy, it is also an essential reference for those studying, and participating in, the negotiation and implementation of multilateral environmental agreements."
– Pia Kohler, Williams College

"This is the definitive text for students seeking to understand the actors, institutions, and political dynamism of contemporary international environmental policy. The book's particular strengths are its case studies and thorough updating."
– Wil Burns, Johns Hopkins University
