... there is currently a massive gap between the reality of global environmental governance and the requirements identified by natural and social scientists who have taken the condition of the earth system seriously. Biermann has provided a thorough and credible program for starting to bridge that gap. Even those who do not share his prescriptions will have to grapple with the analysis that underpins them; Earth System Governance is now a clear and standard reference point, and as such should be required reading for all those who care about the condition of the earth system and its governance. Perspectives on Politics ... Biermann's examinations of the analytical problems of earth system governance are excellent ... Earth System Governance stands out as the most comprehensive, best integrated, and most advanced review of earth system governance research to date. International Studies Review ... Frank Biermann's book is an imaginative must-read on the challenges of earth system governance--a book about a realistic utopianism. It conforms to all central criteria for a seminal academic work: It is theoretically interesting, empirically relevant, and up-to-date. And what is more, it is also a bibliophilic delight. International Journal of Social Economics
