The fresh perspectives offered and the extensive expertise of the contributors make this book a must-read for anyone interested in climate policy." Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change "In their book The Governance of Climate Change: Science, Politics and Ethics, David Held, Angus Hervey and Marika Theros have assembled an extraordinary panel of both insiders and analysts of the climate change regime. It is an up-to-date, very thoughtful assessment of where we are in the difficult process of global action on climate change. An excellent base for understanding why it is so difficult to agree and why we need to." Laurence Tubiana, Director, Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations
