Description

The Global Environment is designed to meet the need for an authoritative assessment of the state of international environmental institutions, laws, and policies at the end of the twentieth century. Editors Norman J. Vig and Regina S. Axelrod bring together distinguished American and European scholars who span the traditional boundaries between political science, international relations, international law, policy studies, and comparative politics to address the enormous complexities of global environmental problems in the next century. Their analyses on the broad subjects of international environmental institutions, law, and policy, as well as sustainable development, help explain where the earth’s physical and biological systems stand today and what we may expect in the future.
