This two-volume set presents significant published literature on both the national and international dimensions of environmental policy. The first volume offers reviews of the comparative literature on national environmental policies, and compares the changes in awareness of environmental issues in Europe, the USA and Japan. It investigates how different countries have established the institutions to deal with environmental policy, and explores how the policies are implemented and the results they achieve. The second volume is devoted to the international scene. It reviews the theoretical research on international environmental policy, explores the politics and problems of international policymaking, examines the connections between national and international environmental policies, and investigates the impact of international policy agreements on individual nations and their effectiveness.
