Reviews of the 1st edition: 'Klaus Bosselmann's book is deeply thought-provoking and should be read by all scholars and students of environmental law, as the debate on sustainability and its governance is definitely not over. His book makes a valuable contribution to some of the most urgent issues facing humankind, and offers a fresh perspective to the prevailing, often tired debates about sustainable development.'
