"Protecting the Global Environment provides readers with an insightful overview of the conceptual tools needed to address the current global environmental crisis. Bryner superbly highlights the importance of making markets more sustainable, development more equitable, and international policies more just. His powerful message is essential reading for all students of global environmental politics."

"Once again, Gary Bryner has given us a book with lasting value. He provides an insightful guide to how international relations theory can help us understand and respond to the vast environmental challenges of our era. His core message: we must rethink what it means for markets to work, for development to be sustainable, and for society to be fair--and find ways to act on those new understandings through international politics. Bryner's analysis gives us cause for hope without underplaying the scope of the task ahead."
-Ken Conca, American University and co-editor of Green Planet Blues
