'The Environment and International Relations provides a clear, intellectually coherent introduction to one of the key issues of our times. This will be a very useful text for undergraduate students and those who want to understand the political complexities of environmental challenges.' Lorraine Elliott, Australian National University
'How can we grasp the unprecedented challenges posed by environmental issues to the world as we know it? Kate O'Neill steers us with a firm hand through such questions, providing a series of robust analytical frameworks that bring clarity to a subject-matter so complex it can sometimes seem intractable. This is a precious guide for students, policy-makers, and anyone interested in either the environment or international relations.' Charlotte Epstein, The University of Sydney
'O'Neill provides a thorough and easily accessible tour d'horizon of global environmental politics. She provides theoretical, historical and critical insights into how well the international community is coping with problems of global and transboundary environmental threats, and the prospects for a broader shift to a more sustainable future. If readers don't come away far better informed and concerned about global environmental threats they simply weren't paying attention.' Peter M. Haas, University of Massachusetts
'Comprehensive, authoritative and accessible, with this book Kate O'Neill deftly manages to guide the reader, whether new to the area or not, through the dense maze of literature on the environment and International Relations. It deserves to be widely read.' Professor Peter Newell, Environmental Change Institute, Oxford University and School of Development Studies, University of East Anglia
'An accessible and up to date introduction, designed to invite further reading and research. Readers will be indebted to Kate O'Neill for the way in which she has read and summarised such a wide range of literature. In my view there is nothing available that gives such comprehensive coverage.' John Vogler, Keele University
'... an excellent text for studying the mainstream of global environmental politics ...' Acta Politica
