Chesapeake Bay Bluesby Howard R. Ernst
Addressing the limited success of the ongoing restoration of Chesapeake Bay, this book shows how the political process has worked against the interests of science, the public, and environmentalists. Ernst (political science, United States Naval Academy) cites dismally poor conditionssuch as fisheries in decline and drinking water in dangerand shows how the forces contributing to these degradations are sown deeply into America's political fabric. He suggests new directions for the future, and that a new course of policy is necessary to improve the bay's condition. Topics include the difficulty of achieving nutrient reductions, interest group imbalance and agricultural policy, and the decline of the blue crab. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
