Great articles Jan 22, 2006
I admit, I have only read half of the articles in this book, particularly the Southeast Asia ones. However, I found them all to be interesting and very insightful. I particularly like how the authors focus on domestic politics as a driving force behind international environmental diplomacy. This is a very useful book for students of Asian environmental policy.
