Promotional Information

Carefully researched, wide-ranging, and accessibly written, Carbon Coalitions makes an important contribution to a rapidly growing literature both on business and global environmental governance, and on climate governance in particular. It provides an immensely useful and detailed political analysis of the rise of carbon trading and in doing so pulls together an interesting and diverse range of literatures on, for example, international relations, social movements, and varieties of capitalism. -- Peter Newell, Professor of International Relations, University of Sussex Jonas Meckling provides the most detailed examination of carbon trading I have yet seen. What we gain from reading this book is a clearer understanding of business influence -- the author's goal is not to explain climate change outcomes per se, but to explain the conditions under which business influence made a difference to those outcomes. -- Virginia Haufler, Department of Government and Politics, University of Maryland In Carbon Coalitions, Jonas Meckling provides a clear and precise account of the emergence and scope of carbon markets, and the factors influencing their evolution. This is a must-read book for anyone wanting to know more about this complex new world of global climate change governance. -- Kate O'Neil, Associate Professor, Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, University of California at Berkeley Jonas Meckling's Carbon Coalitions makes an important contribution to our understanding of business influence in international environmental policymaking. With rich empirical detail and theoretical sophistication, the book makes a convincing case that business coalitions were a decisive force in the rise of carbon markets as a dominant governance mechanism for addressing climate change. -- Jennifer Clapp, CIGI Chair in Global Environmental Governance and Professor, Balsillie School of International Affairs and Environment and Resource Studies Department, University of Waterloo
