Examines the role of politics in the environmental policy making process. Changing our environmental policy has been at the forefront of many political discussions. But how can we make this change come about? In American Politics and the Environment, Second Edition, Byron W. Daynes, Glen Sussman and Jonathan P. West argue it is critical that we must understand the politics of environmental decision making and how political actors operate within political institutions. Blending behavioral and institutional approaches, each chapter combines discussion of an institution along with sidebars focusing on a particular environmental topic as well as a personal profile of a key decision maker. A central focus of this second edition is the emergence of global climate change as a key issue. Although the scientific community can provide research findings to policy makers, politics can create conflicts, tensions, and delays in the crafting of effective and necessary environmental policy responses. Daynes, Sussman, and West help us understand the role of politics in the policy making process and why institutional players such as the president, Congress, and interest groups succeed or fail in responding to important environmental challenges.

The field of environmental history emerged just decades ago but has established itself as one of the most innovative and important new approaches to history, one that bridges the human and natural world, the humanities and the sciences. With the current trend towards internationalizing history, environmental history is perhaps the quintessential approach to studying subjects outside the nation-state model, with pollution, global warming, and other issues affecting the earth not stopping at national borders. With 25 essays, this Handbook is global in scope and innovative in organization, looking at the field thematically through such categories as climate, disease, oceans, the body, energy, consumerism, and international relations.

Students love good stories. That is why case studies are such a powerful way to engage students while teaching them about concepts fundamental to the study of international relations. In Cases in International Relations, Glenn Hastedt, Vaughn P. Shannon, and Donna L. Lybecker help students understand the context of headline events in the international arena. Organized into three main parts—military, economic, and human security—the book’s fifteen cases examine enduring and emerging issues from the longstanding Arab-Israeli conflict to the rapidly changing field of cyber-security. Compatible with a variety of theoretical perspectives, the cases consider a dispute’s origins, issue development, and resolution so that readers see the underlying dynamics of state behavior and can try their hand at applying theory.

'. . . this volume . . . is certainly a valuable addition to university and research libraries.' - Claudia Ringler, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture 'Overall, I believe that Dr Wolf has edited a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners who are interested in responsibly managing and equitably resolving conflicts over water and the environment. This reference furnishes informative background information for both graduate and undergraduate courses in water management and provides guidance for future research on conflict resolution in water resources . . . Dr. Wolf's well-organized book on water conflict brings together under one cover a wealth of valuable information from a wide variety of sources that would be difficult to obtain otherwise.' - Keith W. Hipel, Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management This important collection reprints the most significant papers and case studies on the prevention and resolution of conflict over water resources. It focuses in particular on the human dynamics that are involved when conflicts over water resources impact on different interest groups, economic sectors and legal or political boundaries. It addresses key issues which arise at both the local and the international level, including amongst others: How do people interact in these situations of conflict? What methods do they use to find a compromise? What institutions do they create - either jointly or unilaterally - to help overcome problems in the future?

"13 % aller männlichen Amerikaner könnten ihr Vater sein." Das sagte Steve Jobs dem Time Magazine über seine Tochter Lisa. Für die Öffentlichkeit war er da schon ein Halbgott. Was bedeutete es für sie, so einen Vater zu haben? Zumal er lange nichts von ihr wissen wollte? Lisa Brennan-Jobs hat sich lange Zeit gelassen, dieses Buch zu schreiben, und anders als von vielen erhofft, ist es keine Abrechnung mit dem Apple-Guru geworden, sondern ein kluges und berührendes literarisches Memoir. Lisa war das Ergebnis einer schon im Ansatz gescheiterten Liebe. Als die Studentin Chrisann Brennan schwanger wurde, hatte Steve Jobs hatte gerade das College geschmissen und schraubte in der berühmten Garage im Silicon Valley komische Kästen zusammen. Chrisann wollte Künstlerin werden und verließ den "Nerd" Steve, obwohl sie sein Kind erwartete. Diese Kränkung sollte er ihr - und auch Lisa - lange nicht verzeihen. Der Apple-Gründer bestritt die Vaterschaft, nannte aber gleichzeitig wohl einen seiner Computer nach ihr. Und das kleine Mädchen erlebte eine Kindheit der Extreme: Da war einerseits ihre Hippie-Mutter, die nicht einmal genug Geld für ein Sofa hatte, und andrerseits eben einer der reichsten und berühmtesten Männer der Welt … Herzzerreißend und komisch – eine Kindheit, die man so nie erfinden könnte.
