"The contents of this volume originated as presentations at a workshop sponsored by the National Intelligence Council, in support of the National Intelligence Assessment on Climate Change that it prepared for the U.S. House of Representatives in June 2008"--Acknowledgments.
"In this unique and innovative contribution to environmental security, an international team of scholars explore and estimate the intermediate-term security risks that climate change may pose for the United States, its allies and partners, and for regional and global order through the year 2030. In profiles of forty-three key countries and regions, each contributor considers problems that climate change will pose for existing institutions and practices. By focusing on the conduct of individual states or groups of nations, results add new precision to understanding of the way environmental stress may be translated into political, social, economic, and military challenges in the future"--P.  of cover.
