Environmental Cooperation in Europe: The Political Dimension.

Edited by Otmar Holl, Boulder, CO: Westview Press. 1994. 299 pp. $19.95 Paperbound.

The essays in this volume are a result of a two-day conference held in Vienna in November 1991 to discuss environmental cooperation in Europe. The authors of the essays, scientists and ecological experts from various European countries, have attempted to define the most urgent transnational environmental problems in Europe. The chapters focus on both international and domestic decision-making bodies and institutions that provide the forum for international negotiation and cooperation. Four domestic policy case studies from the Nordic countries, east-central Europe, southern Europe, and Austria are compared. The authors conclude that the wealthier "Atlantic community" countries need to accept more responsibility for European environmental policy.
