Editorial Reviews

“Showing his strength as a reporter, Sweet explains very well that the policy process is not always rational or straight-forward. Outlining both the chronology of global climate policy and the cast of characters, this book shows climate diplomacy is based on logic, science, and personalities.”—Chadwick Dearing Oliver, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
