What People are Saying About This

Elizabeth R. DeSombre

Written in a way that will be accessible to non-specialists . . . this book will help them understand international legal processes relating to the environment, which is how most environmental issues are addressed these days. . . . The information is solid, the examples good, the theoretical structure useful, and the topic important.
-- Elizabeth R. DeSombre, Frost Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and Associate Professor of Political Science, Wellesley College
