Rosenbaumâ€™s classic, comprehensive text once more provides definitive coverage of environmental politics and policy, lively case material, and a balanced assessment of current environmental issues.
Notable revisions include:
â€¢ A completely revamped energy chapter covering conventional energy policy as well as a comparative examination of alternatives to current energy production.
â€¢ Expanded discussion of current U.S. climate change policy with attention to the role of the states, the impact of global environmental politics, and emerging technologies on policy alternatives.
â€¢ Analysis of the Obama administrationâ€™s energy agenda and its profound differences from Bush administration policies and the practical difficulties of creating an effective political coalition in support of the new policy agenda.
â€¢ Greater emphasis on executive-congressional relations in the policy-making cycle.
â€¢ Examination of changes in the environmental movement, with particular attention to newly emerging cleavages over energy and climate issues.
â€¢ A thorough updating of all policy chapters, including an examination of such topics as â€œmountain top removal,â€ the emergence of Bisphenol A as an endocrine disruptor issue, and the â€œnew NIMBYism.â€
New and revised tables, figures, and other data illustrate key environmental information while a new, detailed timeline frames the initial chapterâ€™s historical narrative of evolving environmental policy.
