9780742530539: National Governance and the Global Climate Change Regime

This book follows the groundbreaking Kyoto Protocol from the time of its drafting in 1997 to analyze its viability as an environmental treaty. Dana R. Fisher uses a valuable combination of substantive interview data and country case studies to understand the complexity of the domestic and international debates taking place around the Protocol. With its unique blend of quantitative and qualitative data, this study presents compelling evidence that domestic interests are crucial in the formation of international environmental policymaking.

About the Author:

Dana R. Fisher is assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at Columbia University.

Review:

Societal and international struggles over the Kyoto Protocol will no doubt be the signature environmental conflict of fin du siècle global society. Dana Fisher is one of the few environmental sociologists to explore international environmental regime dynamics in the detail and breadth they deserve. (Frederick H. Buttel, University of Wisconsin, Madison)

Dana Fisher's interviews with a total of eighty national leaders; her superb command of the literature on global warming; and her use of contemporary environmental social theory add up to an excellent work in the field of environmental sociology. (Craig Humphrey, Pennsylvania State University)

An important, well-written, insightful contribution toward explaining regulation of the global environment. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)

The world's future depends on what concerted measures major governments take to mitigate destructive effects of industrialization on environments across and around the earth. In this thought-provoking, closely documented study, Dana Fisher shows how officialdom, business, scientists, and activists in each country interact to produce their country's approach to worldwide environmental measures. Her sustained comparisons of Japan, the Netherlands, and the United States establish that countries differ dramatically in their readiness to act against global threats to the environment, and that national politics―not simply national interest―makes the difference. (Charles Tilly, Joseph L. Buttenwieser Professor of Social Science, Columbia University)
