Product Description


Hugely important, frequently insightful, wonderfully incisive this is a really valuable addition to the literature on climate change in general, and a ground breaking one when it comes to understanding the critically important role that the rapidly industrialising world must play if we are to stand a chance of avoiding dangerous climate change.

Andy Gouldson, Director, ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy, Leeds, UK

As the largest of the industrializing states, Brazil, China, India and Russia will in many ways determine the future of the global environment. This book explores how these major economies understand and frame climate change and the actions they are prepared to take. Using a policy-network approach, it also proposes politically palatable strategies for action. Clearly, this is a must read for students, researchers, and policy practitioners.

Miranda A. Schreurs, Director, Environmental Policy Research Centre, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany

With their massive and growing ecological footprints, China, India, Russia, and Brazil are crucial players in the politics of climate-change mitigation. This volume, with its extensive case studies and comparative analysis, will help scholars, students, journalists, and activists around the world to understand the political realities in these key countries.

Graeme Lang, Department of Asian and International Studies, City University of Hong Kong, China

For anyone interested in recent developments in climate policy of the rapidly emerging economies, Bailey and Compston's book is a valuable compendium. The solution of the challenges discussed in this volume will be the key task of

the next decade of international climate policy. Otherwise we will be moving along a path leading us to a world warming by 3°C or more before the end of the century.

Axel Michaelowa, Greenhouse Gas Measurement and Management
