The global commons - the oceans, Antarctica, outer space and the atmosphere - are critical to the survival of human kind. Yet, they are, by definition, beyond the control of any government. This book raises the question of how to effectively govern and protect and sustain this fragile environment.



The first edition received widespread praise eg "a comprehensive and incisive review of much relevant scholarship and case study material" (Area) and "a must for every reading list" (Progress in Human Geography) and this latest volume will also be invaluable for researchers and students of politics, environmental management, international relations and political geography.
