Exploring the intersection of the 'domestic' and the 'international' in environmental politics, this book presents seven original case studies which show how the internationalization of environmental protection efforts is altering policy-making processes, policy outcomes, and the effectiveness of policy implementation. The authors argue that while new norms and institutions for the global environment are emerging which are changing policy-making processes at the national and regional levels, sub-state politics continues to influence strongly the nature of national responses to international environmental problems. The volume examines climate change politics in China, Japan, and Germany; ozone layer protection in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, and Germany; East-West environmental cooperation and the former Soviet Union; Zimbabwe and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species; biodiversity politics in the United States and United Kingdom; and environmental protection within the European Union.

Industry Reviews

"The contributors take a state-centric approach that, although simplistic, allows them to explore these questions in a familiar theoretical framework. Interestingly, even with a state-centric approach, the authors offer a rich account of case studies both in terms of issues and countries....The volume has a strong theme and will serve as an important reference for students and scholars interested in international relations in general and environmental policy in particular."
