Susskind and Ali address important global environmental issues. Their book provides a comprehensive overview of the geopolitics of negotiating international environmental agreements, with this second edition providing an added perspective from the Global South and an informed analysis of the role of science in environmental politics. Individual chapters relate to current weaknesses in environmental treaty-making, representation and voting, the need for a better balance between science and politics, the advantages and disadvantages of issue linkage, monitoring and enforcement in the face of sovereignty and finally issues around reforming the system.
