Book News Annotation:

Updating the work to reflect recent political events but retaining the basic structure of the text, Vaughn (Northern Arizona U.) presents the new edition of an undergraduate- level textbook introducing environmental politics. Opening chapters discuss the philosophical and political beginnings of environmental concern and stakeholders and institutions that currently shape policy. Focus then shifts to particular environmental issues: public lands, waste and toxics, energy, water, air quality, endangered species and biodiversity, the global commons, and population and sustainability. The text concludes with a chapter on emerging issues such as climate justice, "e-waste," and outdoor accessibility.
