Comparative Environmental Politics

Fairbanks, Alaska -- "Understanding the global environmental future requires an understanding of the domestic circumstances and national performance of states," say Jerry McBeath and Jonathan Rosenberg in their new book Comparative Environmental Politics just released as Volume 25 in the Advances in Global Change Research series published by Springer publishing.

In their research, Drs. McBeath and Rosenberg, look at the ways countries vary politically and assess the impact on responses to global environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, deforestation, and trans-boundary air pollution.

Their work explores five major topics: state-society relations; environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs); Green parties and environmental movements; institutions of government and policy-making; variations in the capacities of states to protect the environment; and national responses to global problems. It compares and contrasts rich and poor nations, large and small countries, liberal democracies and authoritarian states. Both researchers hold faculty appointments in the Department of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
