Despite sporadic news coverage of extreme weather, international conventions on climate change, or special UN days, rarely do we participate in a sustained analysis of environmental policy making. To remedy this shortcoming and to propel the discussion forward, Peter J. Stoett provides a concise introduction to environmental governance.Through case studies on biodiversity, deforestation, pollution, and war, among others, Stoett analyzes the ability of international policy to provide environmental protection and discusses the ever-present factors of equality, sovereignty, and human rights integral to these issues. While providing a panoramic view of the actors and structures producing these policies, Stoett reminds readers that the topic is personal and that effective governance is not solely the responsibility of governments but of individuals and communities as well. Environmental diplomacy may not always meet its intended goals, but positive steps are being achieved, and change can only happen when angst is replaced with an educated determination to work toward environmental justice.

Peter J. Stoett is Professor of Political Science at Concordia University in Montreal and Senior Research Fellow with the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change. In 2012 he was the Fulbright Visiting Research Chair in Canada-US Relations at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. His other works include The International Politics of Whaling (1997), Human and Global Security: An Exploration of Terms (2000), Sustainable Development and Canada: National and International Perspectives (2001, co-author), Environmental Challenges and Opportunities: Local-Global Perspectives on Canadian Issues (2008, co-editor), and Global Politics: Origins, Currents, Directions (fourth edition 2010, co-author).
