From the Publisher:

This text provides an introduction to the policy making process in the United States, and examines U.S. environmental policy-regarding air, water, land use, agriculture, energy, waste disposal, and other areas.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: An introduction to the policy making process in the United States, this book examines U.S. environmental policy regarding air, water, land use, agriculture, energy, waste disposal, and other areas. Key Topics: Provides an overview of how governmental policy is made in the United States. Environmental policy is examined in seven areas — air pollution, water pollution, energy, toxic and hazardous waste, land management, international environmental problems, and international environmental management and helps readers understand why some environmental ideas shape policy while others do not. This book shows that the system, though complex and uncertain, does respond to appropriate inputs. It explores the paradox of environmental policy — we often understand the best solutions to our environmental problems, yet they remain unimplemented due to the nature of our policy-making process. It also includes information on the Clinton Administration, NAFTA, and recent developments in International Environmental Diplomacy. Market:
