This book provides a sophisticated overview of the theories, concepts and methods central to the complex and contentious field of International Environmental Politics (IEP). Ronald B Mitchell carefully introduces students to the political processes involved in both causing and resolving international environmental problems. Each fully integrated chapter:

  • Links environmental policy to politics, bringing in a wide range of practical real-life examples
  • Deepens students' theoretical understanding, helping them to identify and explain international environmental problems and their solutions
  • Goes beyond description and develops students' ability to evaluate claims about outcomes in international environmental politics through empirical testing.
A rounded, in-depth examination of IEP, this book has been specifically written for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in global environmental politics and modules of broader international relations programs.

The SAGE Foundations series fills the gap between narrowly-focused research monographs and broad introductory texts, providing graduate students with state-of-the-art, critical overviews of the key sub-fields within International Relations: International Political Economy, International Security, Foreign Policy Analysis, International Organization, Normative IR Theory, International Environmental Politics, Globalization, and IR Theory.
Explicitly designed to further the transatlantic dialogue fostered by publications such as the SAGE Handbook of International Relations, the series is written by renowned scholars drawn from North America, continental Europe and the UK. The books are intended as core texts on advanced courses in IR, taking students beyond the basics and into the heart of the debates within each field, encouraging an independent, critical approach and signposting further avenues of research.

'I strongly recommend International Politics and the Environment as a reliable and sophisticated guide to the emergence of environmental problems as political issues, negotiations about them, and the conditions for the effectiveness of environmental regimes' - Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University

'Ronald B. Mitchell has hit a home run in an arena where most of us struggle to get to first base. International Politics and the Environment not only explains complex ideas in a manner that is accessible to the beginner; it does so in a way that is consistently interesting to those who have made careers out of work in this field' - Oran R. Young, the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, UC Santa Barbara
'A clear-sighted analysis of the causes of international environmental problems is a precondition for dealing with them. Ronald Mitchell's lucid and comprehensive enquiry into the 'why?' of international unsustainability - and then what to do about it - is a must-read for students, academics, researchers and policy-makers alike' - Professor Andrew Dobson, Keele University
