Nations throughout the world are struggling to limit and manage environmental damages stemming from economic production and consumption. In virtually every country, collective action in the form of public policy has been undertaken to rein in these impacts. This text provides an authoritative overview of the dynamic process through which governments make decisions on environmental matters. In clear, reader-friendly language, Field introduces students to the rudiments of the public policy process, the participants and their roles, and the content of the major federal environmental statutes regarding air, water, and land pollution. Throughout the discussion, Field explores the evolving role of the federal government in U.S. environmental policy. He also highlights important ongoing policy issues, both domestic and international, that will confront policy makers well into the future.
