  2. The International Politics of Climate Change

    The International Politics of Climate Change

    Edited by Aynsley Kellow, Sonja Boehmer-Christiansen
    This highly topical collection, edited by two accomplished academics, explores how environmental science and energy policy relate to international politics and policy. This complex and essentially interdisciplinary subject has been the core about which academics have fiercely debated and, as yet, unsuccessfully reached satisfactory negotiations. The editors interpret the politics of climate change as being driven less by scientific understanding than by disguised interests and deeply believed norms. The carefully selected papers in this volume both analyse and advocate policies that claim to be directed towards ‘combating man-made global warming’ and hence ‘save the planet’. Learn More
