Cases in Enviromental Politics: Stakeholders, Interests, and Policymaking

Front Cover
Routledge, Jan 15, 2009 - Political Science - 276 pages
Like Norman Miller's companion text, Environmental Politics , this casebook emphasizes the struggle for power among stakeholders in environmental politics and policymaking. Whether examining recent legislation on energy policy, air pollution, endangered species, land use, or the politics of food, each case is presented through a narrative introduction and a dozen or more primary source documents that illustrate whose interests are at stake and how they pursue them in the policymaking process. Engaging introductions by Miller provide a narrative frame and context for the primary source documents in each chapter. Discussion questions prompt students to analyze the struggles and compromises inherent in environmental policymaking.The primary source documents include excerpts from public hearing testimony, regulatory agency statements, journal articles, scientific reports, online briefs, and commentary in media outlets from businesses and environmental groups. While the individual cases highlight only the most significant stakeholder positions on each issue, collectively the cases cover the entire spectrum of groups discussed in the main text, Environmental Politics .
