C.H.A.O.S.S. is both a handbook and a guidepost for students and practitioners of global environmental governance (GEG). While the larger part of the book consists of a glossary of over two thousand terms and a list of nearly three thousand acronyms bound to be of immense value to students and practitioners of GEG, its substance is an essay that will influence, if not radically change, the way global environmental governance is conducted. Both critical and hopeful, as well as practical and thought provoking, the essay challenges those who are concerned with the management of our planet and its inhabitants to understand and accept a vocabulary common to the often opposing objectives sought in the many GEG instruments brought forward over the last 50 years. A case is made that, once understood, this vocabulary and the methodologies that logically follow will help give an affirmative answer to the question posed by C.H.A.O.S.S., itself an acronym which stands for "Can Humans and Other Species Survive?".
