“The author assumes sustainable development to be the agreed upon goal, the globe to be the available arena, and national representatives to be the primary actors. These assumptions, even though controversial, take this book beyond the scholarly domain and make it appealing to policy makers and national delgeates. Once the assumptions are accepted, Susskind's strategy becomes very powerful.”—ChoiceThe single best book on the negotiating process for protecting the global environment."—Roger Fisher, Harvard Law School, co-author of Getting to Yes"This book should be mandatory reading for every policymaker involved with the environment and natural resources at the national and international level and certainly by every environmentalist—from both government or non-government sectors—who is worried about the state of our world and is looking for new avenues."—Dr. Uri Marinov, Former Director-General of Environmental Protection Services, Israel“Environmental Diplomacy gives us a perceptive and personal analysis of the successes and weaknesses of past international negotiations affecting the environment. Drawing from that, Susskind offers many provocative ideas for new approaches to institutions and procedures that can better advance the essential goals of protecting the common heritage of all nations and peoples.”—Eugene B. Skolnikoff, Massachusetts Institute of Technology"Environmental Diplomacy is a must for all who want to contribute to the implementation of Rio's Agenda 21 towards sustainable development!"—Marius E. Enthoven, Director-General for Environmental Protection, Ministry of Housing, Planning and Environment, The Netherlands
