Description:

The book looks at how national environmental policy and its place within public discourse developed over time; how policy has changed within federal institutions (president, congress, the courts) and state and local governments, as well as how environmental governance involves private sector environmental policies and practices. Students will appreciate the book's in-depth examinations of public policy dilemmas, including fracking, food production and the environment; urban sustainability; and the viability of using market solutions to address policy challenges. Part Four's Global Issues and Controversies chapters examine global climate change governance; the developing world and the environment; and China's quest for a green economy.Vig and Kraft's concluding chapter provides an excellent synthesis of the topics covered, offering a measured yet hopeful evaluation of what future challenges policymakers will confront as the American environmental movement continues to impact the political process.
