The first edition of this pragmatic course text emphasized the policy value of a "big picture" approach to the ethical, political, technological, scientific, economic, and management aspects of environmental issues. The text then applied this approach to real-world case examples involving leaks in underground storage tanks, toxic waste cleanup, and the effects of global climate change.

This second edition demonstrates the ongoing effectiveness of the book's framework in generating meaningful action and policy solutions to current environmental issues. The text adds case examples concerning congestion taxes, e-waste, hydrofracking, and recent developments in global climate change, updating references and other materials throughout and incorporating the political and policy changes of the Obama administration's first term and developments in national and global environmental issues.

Review:

The beauty of this book is that it offers a holistic, yet straightforward and logical approach, for analyzing the complexity of environmental issues and it is easy to digest and apply in a semester. (Tanya Heikkila, School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver)

A scholarly, detailed analysis... invaluable. (Midwest Book Review)

This new edition... contains updated case studies and three excellent new ones on fracking, electronic waste, and congestion pricing. Each is well described, engaging, and memorable, making them especially valuable as teaching tools, not just thoughtful, timely analyses (CHOICE)

A well-written succinct account of the causes and effects of contemporary environmental problems, addressing the interdisciplinary issues surrounding the environmental policy arena. (Public Administration Review)
