'Part of the value of the prsent volume was and is its timeliness, along with its clear statement of the necessary and anticipated development of a global environmental/economic agenda ... its message ... shows the benefit of two decades of meaningful experience, limited but encouraging success, intellectual development, and mature reflection on the part of those directly concerned with environment in a global context.'
John F. Disinger, The Environmentalist, 233/4 `For those who want a terse and pithy explication of the issues that were aired at the Rio conference, Beyond Interdependence would be a good introduction. The language is clear and succinct and the book would be useful for undergraduate courses in international politics, international relations and environmental studies.'
The International Journal of Environmental Studies `While the massive scope of the book obviously precludes any detailed discussion of the complex issues at hand, it is a well-written and perceptive summary of the diverse challenges posed by global environmental change and the urgent policy responses required. As such it is of interest to specialists, students and more general readers alike'
International Affairs 'This small book is a stepping stone between arguably two of the world's most significant environmental events. This book is a primer that builds on the awareness created by the World Commission on Environment and Development. It clearly lays out what must be achieved if the Earth Summit is to succeed. The book is definitely worth buying. It provides a good compilation of material proving the thesis that all nations are economically and ecologically linked.'
Borealis: the Magazine for Canadian Parks & Wilderness, Issue No. 10, 1992 `the book's content strikes a good balance between general observations and detailed examples. Insight is offered into fundamental relationships - responsible for certain environmental problems - which may provide points of application for realsitic solutions.'
Jeroen C.J.M. Van Den Bergh, Free University, Amsterdam, Environmental Policitics, Vol. 1, No. 4, Winter 1992 'Applied oriented, it gives far-reaching recommendations for policy reforms on all levels.'
