This title was first published in 2001. Discussing the implications for the world of embracing - or failing to embrace - international environmental equity, as a core global objective is an essential exercise, which this book undertakes with diligence and vigour. Written in an accessible style, this is essential reading for students of international relations and world politics, global environmental policy and environmental policy and American foreign policy.


'The book will especially make an interesting reading for students, researchers and academics interested in global environmental politics and USA foreign policy. The author needs to be congratulated for filling an important gap in literature about the hazy, yet crucial, concept of international equity.' Progress in Development Studies
