Marco Verweij presents a new and challenging theoretical framework within which to understand international relations, based on the cultural theory developed by Mary Douglas, Michael Thompson, Aaron Wildavsky, and others. By applying this framework in a detailed study of the environmental protection of the river Rhine in Western Europe and the Great Lakes of North America, he also contributes to a better understanding of how transboundary environmental problems have been, and can be, solved.

Verweij (the Max Planck Project Group on the Law of Common Goods, Germany) introduces the cultural theory developed by Mary Douglas, Michael Thompson, Aaron Wildavsky, and others to the study of international relations. What distinguished Verweij's effort from other attempts to construct general theories of international relations is that his framework can also be applied in rigorous empirical research. He uses grid-group theory to reveal and solve paradoxes that have characterized domestic and international efforts to clean up the Rhine and the Great Lakes. Annotation c.
