?A well-informed and thorough account of how [developing]nations are managing their climate change policies" Perspectives on Politics "Of great value to both the scholarly world and the policyworld. The quality of the research is consistently high across allthe chapters, and the editors have ensured an excellent degree ofanalytical cohesion." LSE Review of Books "An excellent reference for anyone concerned with the directionof climate policy in rising economies around the world." Reference and Research Book News "This valuable book once and for all dispels the myth thatdeveloping countries are unwilling to take action to confrontclimate change. By disentangling the complex motivations andincentives facing policy-makers, and the obstacles they face, thisis important reading for all who want to understand how allcountries can be encouraged to become part of the solution toclimate change." Andrew Steer, World Resources Institute "This is a book of considerable value not only to governmentsand other stakeholders in the developing world, but to othersacross the globe as well. The principle of 'common butdifferentiated responsibility' really needs considerable analysisand interpretation for application in different parts of the world.This book very ably reviews global developments and developingcountry initiatives to highlight the choices, opportunities andchallenges facing the developing world in the field of climategovernance. Given the very readable material presented in thesepages, I would recommend this piece of literature to anyoneinterested in climate issues across the globe." Rajendra K. Pachauri, Yale University "The large developing countries are essential to the globaleffort on climate change. This book by people with deep expertisein each country tells us with authority what they are doing andhow. High quality work on an important subject." Ross Garnaut, University of Melbourne "This volume is a thoroughly readable and utterly fascinatingpractical attempt to map climate governance in a set of importantdeveloping countries. It takes a significant step towards filling asizeable, even cavernous, research gap." Environmental Politics
