Authors Kelly Sims Gallagher and Xiaowei Xuan discuss their new book

Titans of the Climate: Explaining Policy

Process in the United States and China

Tuesday, April 02
8:30 am - 9:30 am
1616 Rhode Island Ave NW, Washington, D.C.


Dear Colleagues;
The CSIS Energy & National Security Program is pleased to invite you to a private breakfast discussion with Kelly Sims Gallagher (The Fletcher School, Tufts University) and Xiaowei Xuan (Development Research Center, The State Council of the People's Republic of China), co-authors of the new book Titans of the Climate: Explaining Policy Process in the United States and China.
The book examines how the two largest greenhouse gas emitters, the United States and China, develop and implement climate policy.  Comparing the policy processes of the two countries, Gallagher and Xuan make the case that if each country understands more about the other's goals and constraints, climate policy cooperation is more likely to succeed.
Please RSVP to  We hope you will join us for an informative discussion.
