Understanding Environmental Administration and Law provides an engaging, introductory overview of environmental policy. Author Susan J. Buck explores the process through which policy is made, the political environment in which it is applied, and the statutory and case laws that are critical to working within the regulatory system. This revised and expanded third edition adds case studies that help bring the subject to life and includes new material on:
- the Bush Administration and its approach to administering environmental laws
- the continuing evolution of environmentalism and the changing role of environmental regulation in the United States
- the development and implementation of environmental agreements at the international level
- the impacts and implications of globalization
Understanding Environmental Administration and Law provides a framework for understanding the law as a managerial tool.
