This collaborative volume, the culmination of years of research, addresses the issue of why some attempts at solving or alleviating international environmental problems succeed while others fail. The volume combines analytical work on regime theories with case studies covering several topical issues: whaling, air pollution, the ozone layer, and land based sea pollution.
