The first edition of Public Policies for Environmental Protection contributed significantly to the incorporation of economic analysis in the study of environmental policy. Fully revised to account for changes in the institutional, legal, and regulatory framework of environmental policy, the second edition includes extensively updated chapters on federal regulation, air and water pollution policy, and hazardous and toxic substances. It includes coverage of the Safe Drinking Water Act, and entirely new chapters on market-based environmental policies, global climate change, and the reduction and handling of solid waste. Portney, Stavins, and their contributors provide an invaluable resource for researchers, policymakers, industry professionals, and journalistsanyone who needs up-to-date information on U.S. environmental policy. With their generous supply of background information, and careful explanation of policy alternatives, the authors provide an ideal book for students in courses about environmental economics or environmental politics. Praise for the first edition: "An admirably balanced, succinct analysis of the economic rationale, history, and performance of major federal pollution legislation--should be considered a standard reference work and essential reading for scholars, policy specialists, and lay readers--a superior book." --Forum for Applied Research and Public Policy"Perhaps the best available summary and assessment of the main EPA regulatory programs: It is an excellent book for teaching purposes as well as for a wide range of readers interested in understanding these programs." --American Scientist
