Review:

Because of its thoroughness, clarity, and depth, Environmental Politics & Policy has long been the benchmark text for courses in environmental affairs. The new edition continues this tradition with substantial new material covering the Obama administration and expanded coverage of current issues and controversies. The author is one of the pioneers and major scholars in the field of environmental policy and politics. Highly recommended. --David W Orr, Oberlin College

As with every edition, Tony Rosenbaum's Environmental Politics and Policy is the best single-author U.S. environmental policy text on the market. The narrative is always engaging, and each chapter offers fascinating insights in addition to necessary, up-to-date and fundamental information. Rosenbaum provides plenty of environmental data to support his conclusions, which makes the text even more attractive to interdisciplinary environmental science and studies students. --Daniel Press, University of California Santa Cruz

Environmental Politics and Policy has well organized, coherent chapters that work well to support lectures, and makes good use of case studies and examples that make the text easy for students to understand. Many of my students are environmental majors and have no background in political science or are political science majors with no environmental background; this book is accessible to both groups. I like the balance between the discussion of policy and specific environmental issues. --Shannon Orr, Bowling Green State University
