Publisher Comments:

What has been achieved since NEPA (the National Environmental Policy Act) became national policy in 1969? This book points out where and how NEPA has affected national environmental policy and where and why its intent has been frustrated. The roles of Congress, the President, and the courts in the implementation of NEPA are analyzed. Caldwell also looks at the conflicted state of public opinion regarding the environment and conjectures as to what must be done in order to develop a coherent and sustained policy. He analyzes ways in which the act has been subverted by procedures, how NEPA has been integrated into agency missions, and how NEPA has faired beyond U.S. territorial jurisdiction (especially with regard to foreign relations and the global commons). A final chapter suggests how the full intent of NEPA can be realized in public policy and ultimately lead to an amendment to the Constitution.

Synopsis:

Why has "environment" been a difficult issue for U.S. public policy, and what is needed to solve the problem? In 1969, Congress passed the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This book points out where and how NEPA has affected national environmental policy, and where and why the Act's intent has been frustrated. The roles of Congress, the President, and the courts in the implementation of NEPA are analyzed. Professor Caldwell also looks at the conflicted state of public opinion regarding the environment and conjectures about what must be done in order to develop a coherent and sustained policy.

Synopsis:

"The National Environmental Policy Act has grown more, not less, important in the decades since its enactment. No one knows more about NEPA than Lynton Caldwell. And no one has a clearer vision of its relevance to our future. Highly recommended." --David W. Orr, Oberlin College
