What People are Saying About This
A fascinating and lucid analysis of the evolution of thinking concerning international environmental management. Whereas liberal economic policies were regarded as anathema to sound ecological management in the 1970s, they became central to international approaches in the 1990s. Bernstein perceptively points out that the transformation can only be understood in terms of striking changes in the acceptance of certain political norms over the three decades. The book is clearly one of the best studies on international environmental politics.
