Following decades of economic expansion, Asia is facing the environmental consequences of unfettered development. This poses a challenge because prevailing cultural systems in the region emphasize wealth over ecological sustainability. The book addresses the relationship between Asian cultural values and International Environmental Law. It examines the tension between profit and environmental preservation, the key issues to which it gives rise, and the policy mechanisms employed in this context. This book contributes to understanding the questions involved and paves the way for a more enlightened policy action. Mushkat concludes that Asian values have not proved to be an insurmountable barrier to the spread of environmental law. Rather, the region is responding to impulses emanating from the global arena rather than resisting them consciously. This analysis and its conclusions should be of considerable interest to scholars and students of public international law, international relations, environmental policy, comparative culture, economic development, and social change.
