9780130993083: The Environmental Policy Paradox

For courses in Environmental Policy, Environmental Studies, and Public Policy; and as a supplement for courses in American Government and Public Administration.

This text provides an introduction to the policy making process in the United States with regard to air, water, land use, agriculture, energy, waste disposal, and other areas. It explains why some environmental ideas shape policy while others do not, and illustrates that even when the best short- and long-term solutions to environmental problems are identified, the task of implementing these solutions is either left undone or is completed too late. Also included is a comprehensive history of the environmental movement.
