I am so excited to hear that Regina S. Axelrod, Stacy D. VanDeveer and David Leonard Downie are publishing a third edition of Global Environment: Institution, Law and Policy. I searched far and wide for an updated text but I found nothing that stood up to this content. I did a nominal group technique study last semester with my students who were using this text for International Environmental Issues, and we had students actually advocating for the text to be used again. My students enjoy the text just as much as I do, and I'm looking forward to the updated version. - --Emily Rhodenbaugh, Sierra Nevada College
