Transatlantic Regulatory Cooperation features eleven original essays by leading academics of regulation on both sides of the Atlantic. They explore topics such as the impact of federalism on regulatory policies both within the US and Europe, the transatlantic dynamics of water policy, climate change, pesticide and chemical regulation, and biotechnology. A primary focus of this timely study is on the shifting roles of California and the EU as regulatory leaders and ITS impact on future regulatory cooperation across the Atlantic.
This informative book will appeal to graduate and postgraduate students, as well as academics and researchers in international relations, business, law and economics who are working on regulatory issues. The policy community which focuses on regulation and transatlantic regulatory relations will also find it an important resource.

David Vogel and Johan Swinnen have assembled a first-rate book on regulatory cooperation between the US and EU. The case studies provide detailed and nuanced analyses of policy areas from water to climate change and biotechnology, and the concluding chapters offer well-judged and balanced assessments of the regulatory challenges for future transatlantic relations.

Transatlantic Regulatory Cooperation represents a cutting-edge contribution to the study of economic regulation, and in particular the prospects for cooperation between the US and the EU as the world's dominant economic blocs. The authors, among the leading scholars in their fields, provide theoretically and empirically informed studies of transatlantic cooperation and conflict in areas such as the environment, climate change, food safety, and genetically modified foods, deriving provocative and compelling policy recommendations from each. The discussion of federalism, and the opportunities and constraints it presents for international cooperation, is superb. --- Mark A. Pollack, Temple University, US
