This important two-volume set presents the most significant published literature on both the national and international dimensions of environmental policy. In Volume I, the articles by leading scholars in the field offer reviews of the comparative literature on national environmental policies and compare the changes in awareness of environmental issues in Europe, the US and Japan. They investigate how different countries have established the institutions to deal with environmental policy making and explore how the polices are implemented and the results they achieve. Volume II is devoted to the international scene. It reviews the theoretical research on international environmental policy, explores the politics and problems of international policymaking, examines the connections between national and international environmental policies and investigates the impact of international policy agreements on individual nations and their effectiveness. This authoritative collection will be invaluable to all students, academics, politicians and policymakers who have an interest in environmental policy.
