Coming to grips with todays environmental policy challenges is no small feat. What are the practical problems involved with sustainable development policies? What impact do environmental values have on public opinion and policymaking? What roles have the states taken in environmental policy innovation? Rosenbaums classic, comprehensive text offers definitive coverage of environmental politics and policy, lively case material, and a balanced assessment of current environmental issues. This updated seventh edition presents an extensive revision and update with: * sharp evaluation of the Bush administrations most significant environmental decisions, with particular attention to the conflict between conservative and environmentalist approaches to ecological issues; * increased emphasis on the interaction of global and domestic environmental issues, such as climate change and growing importance of other transboundary issues in the domestic economy * balanced discussion of petroleum consumption and its environmental impact; * greater attention to the politics of energy conservation, including regulatory and technological approaches; * and increased coverage of environmental justice issues. New and revised tables and figures capture key environmental data while additional Web-based references and research materials point students toward further study. - Publisher.

A good starting point for environmental policy. Slightly dated as of 2010, but certainly well worth a read for the historical background. Read full review
