Understanding Environmental Administration and Law provides an engaging, introductory overview of environmental policy. Author Susan J.

This revised and expanded third edition adds case studies that help bring the subject to life and includes new material on * the Bush Administration and its approach to administering environmental laws * the continuing evolution of environmentalism and the changing role of environmental regulation in the United States * the development and implementation of environmental agreements at the international level *the impacts and implications of globalization Understanding Environmental Administration and Law provides a framework for understanding the legal and political context of environmental protection and familiarizes readers with the federal environmental regulatory structure. With a focus on understanding the law as a managerial tool, the book is an essential resource for anyone involved with environmental issues, from students to citizen activists to managers at the federal, state, and local level.
