The second edition of Environmental Politics: Stakeholders, Interests, and Policymaking shows students that environmental politics is fundamentally a clash of competing stakeholders’ interests, and environmental policy the result of their reconciliation. But developments in environmental policymaking over the past several years have been little short of earthshaking. The text not only marks changes in the formal lawmaking process itself, but covers recent elements reshaping environmental politics, such as:

  •  the new environmentally activist posture of business
  • the dramatic shift of policymaking influence from the federal to state and local levels
  • the participation of new actors on the environmental policy stage, most notably the faith community
  • the U-turn of organized labor, from opponent of environmentalists to their collaborator
  • the consolidation of the varying missions of environmental advocacy groups to fight global warming
  • the emergence of science from its historic political neutrality to open advocacy
  • the increasing role of both the media and the judiciary

Written by an expert with more than 25 years of "smoke-filled room" experience in environmental policymaking, Environmental Politics: Stakeholders, Interests, and Policymaking gives students an insider's view of how policies are forged.  By examining current environmental issues through a stakeholder lens, this book not only provides a unique perspective into how policies are adopted, but also illuminates the transformative power of global warming as a political force.

About the Author:

Norman Miller has served on the faculties of Rutgers University, Rollins and Meredith Colleges, and North Carolina State University. He is currently a member of the Global Warming and Energy Subcommittee of the national Sierra Club, and the Executive Committee of the Sierra Club's North Carolina Chapter. Previously he worked in both the legislative and executive branches of New Jersey state government in a variety of environmental policy capacities. He is also an academic member of the Society of Environmental Journalism.

Review:

"The overall approach, quality, and effectiveness of this text are excellent. Miller writes from a 'behind the scenes' perspective, which students will appreciate, and he is well attuned to what is accessible and understandable to undergraduates."

--Robert V. Bartlett, University of Vermont

"Miller’s new edition of Environmental Politics offers a timely and fresh look at the making of environmental policy in the United States. All the basics are here―key stakeholders and agencies, detailed case studies, and descriptions of the pressures on the EPA, news media, scientists, and policy-makers. The second edition also brings new strengths: thoughtful dissection of ground-breaking federal court decisions on global warming, the ‘greening’ of businesses, and the controversy over government attempts to influence the work of climate scientists."

--Dr. Robert Cox, Professor of Communication Studies and the Ecology Curriculum, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
