In this book Richard N. L. Andrews looks at American environmental policy over the past four hundred years, shows how it affects environmental issues and public policy decisions today, and poses the central policy challenges for the future. This second edition brings the book up to date through President George W. Bush's first term and gives the current state of American environmental politics and policy. "A guide to what every organizational decision maker, public and private, needs to know in an era in which environmental issues have become global."--Lynton K. Caldwell, "Public Administration Review" "A wonderful text for students and scholars of environmental history and environmental policy."--William L. Andreen, "Environmental History"
