Contemporary environmental problems are analyzed as prominent issues in international and domestic politics. Collective choices among sovereign states are discussed with respect to conservation of such global resources as tropical rain forests and the ozone layer. International negotiations and organizations that seek compromise between conservation and economic growth are studied. We inquire into the management of resources such as fish, farm land and energy by regional and national governments, and international agreements, with emphasis on Canadian policy.
