9780791460245: Communication and Public Participation in Environmental Decision Making (Suny Series in Communication Studies)

The contributors to this volume explore the communication practices of various stakeholders--interested citizens, grassroots and public interest groups, industry representatives, scientists and technical experts, government agencies, federal regulators--engaged in a variety of environmental decision-making contexts in the U.S. and elsewhere. Included are case studies that analyze individuals and organizations participating both within institutional mechanisms and through alternative forms of environmental advocacy. These studies reveal that public participation in environmental decision making is both shaped by and, in many cases, constrained by the ways in which environmental issues, problems, and solutions are defined or framed through the strategic communication practices of the participants.

Review:

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in contemporary practice of public participation For those already versed in the public participation literature, there will be much that is familiar. But the slight sense of having heard some of this before is much outweighed by the richness of the material and the strength of the communication studies approach, providing a consistent spine through all the work. Journal of Environmental Management and Planning
this volume provides a good overview of theory and practice in environmental decision-making, plus a 34-page bibliography that covers the three and-and-a-half decades of environmental public involvement. Technical Communication
These essays address issues that are vital to environmentalism and public policy, as well as contribute to communication studies and political science. The overwhelming strength of the book is the plethora of case studies. In relating these cases, the authors contribute not only to general knowledge, but also to social theory and environmental communication. Kevin Michael DeLuca, author of Image Politics: The New Rhetoric of Environmental Activism
This book will make a substantial and important contribution to the literature, not only in communication studies and environmental studies, but also in urban planning and policy making. James A. Throgmorton, coeditor of Story and Sustainability: Planning, Practice, and Possibility for American Cities"
