Anarchy and the Environment examines how the recognition of environmental limits, combined with the ability of states to degrade common environmental resources, affects the strategies and bargaining power of particular groups involved in international environmental negotiations. The contributors examine a wide range of environmental issues, including fisheries management, ozone depletion, acid rain, and water consumption rights, offering important practical insights into environmental negotiations and bargaining. Anarchy and the Environment also offers an important theoretical contribution by challenging the conventional explanations of bargaining dynamics and the resolution of collective action problems in international environmental politics. This book analyzes these problems and uses them as means to evaluate and expand upon common hypotheses regarding the shadow effect of the future on current behavior, the role of free riders in management regimes, and the role of market power in solving collective action and enforcement problems in international environmental management. Contributors include J. Samuel Barkin, Barbara Connolly, Elizabeth R. DeSombre, David Leonard Downie, Christopher C. Joyner, Richard A. Matthew, Ronald Mitchell, and George E. Stambaugh VI.

Review quote

"International environmental problems are of rising salience in the field and this book promises to be highly relevant for all of them. While the focus of the book--Common Pool Resources-- is not new, this work's treatment of the decision making and the bargaining outcomes involved in trying to reach agreements on CPRs marks it as an important addition to the literature." --Patrick M. Morgan, University of California, Irvine "Barkin and Shambaugh provide a fruitful framework and an interesting line of inquiry." -- Environmental Politics
