Author: Erika Marie Bsumek; David Kinkela; Mark Atwood Lawrence
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, 2013.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Nation-states are failing to resolve global problems that transcend the abilities of single governments or even groups of governments to address. This book argues that this dilemma is not as new as is sometimes claimed. It offers crucial context and even lessons for present-day debates about resolving the most urgent environmental problems.
