Overview

Anarchy and the Environment examines how the recognition of environmental limits, combined with the ability of states to degrade common environmental resources, affects the strategies and bargaining power of particular groups involved in international environmental negotiations. The contributors examine a wide range of environmental issues, including fisheries management, ozone depletion, acid rain, and water consumption rights, offering important practical insights into environmental negotiations and bargaining. Anarchy and the Environment also offers a theoretical contribution by challenging the conventional explanations of bargaining dynamics and the resolution of collective action problems in international environmental politics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contributes to the attempt to reinject politics into the international environmental movement by people who think an exclusive focus on technical solutions and cooperation is unrealistic. Uses the analytical lens of common pool resources to examine conflicting political interests within a framework of rationalist analysis. Applies the approach to tuna fishing, the southern ocean, stratospheric ozone, and other problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
From the Publisher
“International environmental problems are of rising salience in the field and this book promises to be highly relevant for all of them. While the focus of the book—Common Pool Resources— is not new, this work’s treatment of the decision making and the bargaining outcomes involved in trying to reach agreements on CPRs marks it as an important addition to the literature.” —Patrick M. Morgan, University of California, Irvine

“Barkin and Shambaugh provide a fruitful framework and an interesting line of inquiry.” — Environmental Politics
