Ozone diplomacy : new directions in safeguarding the planet by Richard Elliot Benedick( )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer, adopted in 1987 and revised in 1990, saved life on Earth from possible destruction - the first time that the international community faced such a global threat. Ambassador Richard Benedick, who was the chief U.S. negotiator of this treaty, combines science, politics, economics, and diplomacy in a fascinating and definitive account of the origins and realization of this precedent-setting international agreement." "Ozone Diplomacy provides a dramatic portrayal of the participants in this dynamic process - scientists, industrialists, and government officials - and offers useful models for international approaches to other emerging issues such as global warming. This intriguing story will be invaluable to all those concerned with the environment, international law, and the practice of modern diplomacy."--BOOK JACKET
