Environmental Diplomacy: An Examination and a Prospective of Canadian-U.S. Transboundary Environmental Relations
Environmental Diplomacy: An Examination and a Prospective of Canadian-U.S. Transboundary Environmental Relations
By John E. Carroll
University of Michigan Press, 1983, 382 pp.

The author combines scientific knowledge and political understanding in this outstanding treatise, a valuable introduction to a complex and increasingly important group of issues-of which "acid rain" is only the most recent and controversial. Carroll argues for a more systematic and structured approach to bilateral environmental problems. He believes that the present system-"ad hoc with a light patina of order and governance"-has been overwhelmed.
