Climate Change and Political Strategy by Hugh Compston Climate Change and Political Strategy, Paperback (December 2011)

This title analyses the nature of climate policy politics in affluent democracies from a number of theoretical angles. It has been written to improve our understanding of which political strategies would be likely to enable governments to make deep cuts in emissions while avoiding significant political damage.

Policy Networks and Policy Change by Hugh Compston Policy Networks and Policy Change, Hardback (September 2009)

Among the findings are that we should expect more business-friendly policies, more intrusive law enforcement, more women-friendly policies, and stronger climate policies.
