About this book

Climate change is the biggest challenge facing the world. The role played by the United States may determine our collective future. Newly available in paperback, Climate Change and American Foreign Policy examines the actors, institutions, and ideas shaping US policies and actions. Updated with a comprehensive preface by the editor, the book introduces the issue of climate change in the context of US foreign policy. It analyses policies and critically evaluates the US role. Chapters analyze a full range of topics, including the politics of climate science, economics and regulation, domestic politics and nongovernmental organizations, the presidency and Congress, diplomacy and international negotiations, environmental agreements and regimes, and questions of responsibility and justice. The book concludes by looking at how international norms have influenced US climate change policies. Climate Change and American Foreign Policy will be of interest to everyone concerned about climate change, global environmental politics, US foreign policy and international relations.

Reviews

"Climate Change and American Foreign Policy loosens the deadlock between Realpolitik and the dangerous realities of climate change." - Aubrey Meyer, Global Commons Institute, London.

"This book's diverse investigations into the reasons for the slow pace of the American policy response to the climate problem also show the possibilities and limits of various theoretical approaches to policy analysis. Given the importance of climate change issues and the obvious need for a constructive American policy, this book is a timely contribution that will stimulate scholarly discussion about both pressing practical policy matters, as well as the current conceptual questions in studying international environmental policymaking." - Simon Dalby, Carleton University, Ottawa
