About this book

This book is concerned with the question of why the environment is protected in the international arena. In this innovative study Gillespie explodes the myth that we all want to achieve the same ends. He shows how nations, like individuals, are creating environmental laws and policies which are continually inviting failure since such laws are riddled with inconsistencies and are ultimately contradictory in purpose. Specifically, he seeks a nexus between the reasons why nations protect the environment, how these reasons are reflected in law and policy, and what complications arise from these choices.
