Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bringing together a wide range of environmental issues that have been debated since the mid-1950s, this book views these issues as a result of changes in values in American society since World War II. The author explores such substantive issues as pollution, natural lands, chemical carcinogens, and population-resources balances. He examines the politics of environmental science, economic analysis, planning, and management, and traces the impact of environmental issues on local, state, and federal government. The book explores political controversy to shed light on the working of political institutions and to establish their relationship to social change.

Synopsis:

The impact of environmental issues on government is traced by exploring controversial policies and clarifying relationships between political institutions and changing social values in contemporary America.
