About this book

This book explores the nature of the domestic consensus in specific developing countries and the common, converging, diverging and conflicting interests underlying the international consensus. It presents a coherent account of the major North-South conflicts on this issue and explains these conflicts in terms of forthright and compelling arguments.

'... the book is an interesting study not only on the problem of the climate change, but also on the general issues of international environmental law. [...] The book is well-structured and presented in an orderly manner. It makes for fascinating reading. [...] the book under review constitutes a substantial contribution to the field of international environmental law in general, and merits recommendation to all persons interested in the common problems of environmental protections - lawyers and non-lawyers alike.' Netherlands International Law Review, XLV:1 (1998)
