Summary Read First Chapter image missing

The environmental movement is having a marked impact on national and international politics. This book examines the dominant ethics, attitudes, and moral values behind the international environmental movement and analyzes how it has influenced national policies around the world. In addition, it assesses the effectiveness of international law and international organizations in improving natural resource conservation.

"The essays are all original, written by some of the best people doing research and writing in their respective fields, and united by a common emphasis upon the linkage between internal and external political forces and institutions affecting environmental policy in nations and global regions. This is an excellent undergraduate reader for courses on environmental policy, current international issues, current issues, international politics, comparative government, or international organization." -- Walter A. Rosenbaum, University of Florida
