About this book

This book examines the question of why effective action has been taken to ameliorate some global environmental problems while no improvement has been made on others. This book provides a comprehensive typology of the potential costs and benefits of effective agreements and clarifies the leader's true interests on particular environmental issues.

Reviews

"While there are many books and articles written about United States foreign policy on the one hand and global environmental policy on the other, Global Environmental Negotiations and U.S. Interests successfully brings the two together in a single volume. Davenport analyzes three rather well-known global environmental problems - ozone protection, deforestation and climate change - by using a cost-benefit framework to explain U.S. behavior in the international environmental arena. This book is a valuable tool to gain understanding of the relationship between the United States and its negotiating partners and how this affects the outcome of environmental treaty negotiations."

- Pamela S. Chasek, Associate Professor of Political Science, Manhattan College, and Editor, Earth Negotiations Bulletin, International Institute for Sustainable Development

"[Davenport] offers a fine, stand-alone contribution to the field..." - Lynn M. Wagner Global Environmental Politics
