"The book, written as part of the research program of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change, provides a rigorous theoretical roadmap for the study of institutions concerned with environment. The author analyzes difficult problems, such as the interactions between institutions that operate on different spatial scales and the fit (or misfit) between ecosystems and regimes. He links insights from theoretical research to the practical development of international institutions by offering a set of diagnostic tools to identify institutional deficiencies and design principles to remedy them. This excellent volume deserves to be read by a broad international audience."--Edith Brown Weiss, Francis Cabell Brown Professor of International Law, Georgetown University Law Center
