This is a good source of information for students studying environmental protection. It is essential to have a good understanding of international law and policy in this area.
Nice structure covering the actors and players and covering some great examples and cases for discussion! Will be using it in my Environmental Protection module.
Great introductory work! Great lecturer service!
This book is an essential resource for a new module at undergraduate level, 'Environments of Social Policy'. The syllabus includes Global Public Health, Global Policy and the Environment, and Sustainability. This is an excellent easily accessible text which has been updated to cover present day issues.
An excellent overview for both undergraduate and postgraduate students on policy making in the field of environment and sustainability. A useful update for a rapidly changing field and written in a highly accessible format. This book has been added to the reading list for undergraduate Marine Resources course and as a postgrad resource for individual students.
Fantastic for consideration of environmental issues as a starter piece of literature ,however it did not go into great detail and therefore would require further reading to expand on any points raised.
A solid introduction into the topic provided by experts in the respective fields. It's perfect to provide some empirical foundation and to point to some relevant debates.
