Item description for Environmental Policy: New Directions For the Twenty-First Century by Norman J. Vig...

Evaluating environmental policy while considering the lasting implications of today's environmental controversies for the future is no easy task, especially given the dramatic changes of the past couple years. Assessing new strategies prompted by the George W. Bush administration, Norman J. Vig and Michael E. Kraft head a team of distinguished contributors to help students make sense of the underlying trends, institutional shortcomings, and policy dilemmas that shape the contentious world of environmental politics. Accessibly written, each chapter attempts to explain the most important developments in environmental politics in recent decades-at the local, state, national, and international levels-and at the same time points to new policy directions for the future. Environmental Policy is essential reading for students of public policy and for anyone who is interested in the current debate over reforming environmental policies and promoting sustainable development in the future.

Reviews - What do customers think about Environmental Policy: New Directions For the Twenty-First Century?

informative and interesting  Nov 11, 2007
a lot of books in this genre can be dry and a total snooze to read. this book is written not only well and full of great information, but it is such an easy read. i read through chapters faster than any other "text" book i have had. i was entertained enough that it is questionable if i wasn't reading the book for pleasure instead of work. :)
Newest in a classic series  Sep 6, 2000
This is the new edition of "Environmental Policy in the 1990s," a series now considered to be the most important in the field. This edition has some of the classic essays from earlier editions, but is expanded to cover the Clinton administration and address issues of a global nature.

I have been using this series as a basic text in graduate courses in environmental policy for years. I consider it to be a primary source of not only teaching, but research and basic information. All of the essays are clearly written and as unbiased as possible. I give this my highest recommendation.

(Addendum in 2007. This series is up to six editions with a seventh due out this summer. All are essential for the serious student of environmental policy and history).
