Booknews
Begins the task of identifying the patterns, explaining the causes, and exploring the processes of compliance with environmental and development commitments made by the richest countries in the world during the decade after the Cold War. Draws on explanatory factors from three bodies of international relations theory<-->regime, concert, and institutional theory<-->to provide a synthetic explanation of compliance. Also traces the process by which commitments are translated into national policy adjustment, by examining how the obligations affect and are affected by salient institutions and actors within a national government's policy-making process. Seems to have been a doctoral dissertation for the University of Toronto. US distribution is by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
