From the Publisher" Governing the Air is a much welcomed and needed book within the area of risk governance and management. Arguably the popularity of transboundary air pollution studies peaked in the 1980s and early 1990s, after which the field became eclipsed by discussions surrounding climate change. With this book, professors Lidskog and Sundqvist and their stellar cast of authors have once again put transboundary air pollution studies into the limelight. This is a must-read book for policy makers, academics, and others active in the air pollution debate of the present day." — Ragnar E. Löfstedt, Professor of Risk Management and theDirector of King's Centre for Risk Management, King's College London
"This is a book about air quality, but also the ways in which environmental governance necessitates the negotiation and framing of social, scientific, and natural boundaries.
The authors provide a compelling blend of empirical insight and theoretical sophistication—spiced throughout with innovative reflections on practice. Governing the Air makes a powerful case for the conceptual, political, and practical significance of high-quality social science." — Alan Irwin, Copenhagen Business School
