Authoritative and classic, the seventh edition of Environmental Policy once again brings together top scholars to evaluate the impact of past environmental policy while anticipating its future implications, helping students decipher the underlying trends, institutional constraints, and policy dilemmas that shape environmental politics. This new edition represents the most extensive revision to date: five new chapters include coverage of national security and the environment, China¿s environmental problems, domestic and international actions on climate change, conflicts over U.S. natural resource policies and collaborative ecosystem management, and the role of economics and market incentives in environmental policy. Incorporating analysis of the eight years under George W. Bush and a look ahead to the Barack Obama administration, all chapters include new scholarship, case studies, poll data, court rulings, congressional actions, agency decisions, and other events at the international, national, state, and local levels. With its clear, engaging writing, this tried and true reader makes great environmental research and scholarship accessible to an undergraduate audience. Environmental Policy includes new coverage of: * national energy policy * climate change * implementation of the Endangered Species Act * exploration for oil and natural gas on public lands * ecosystem management * the role of science in environmental policy * court decisions that challenge administrative rulemaking * the greening of industry * urban sustainability initiatives * the environmental effects of national security decisions * economic development and the environment
