Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There is no doubt that business plays a significant role in environmental policy making and implementation, and rightly so. Yet there is little empirical data on why business groups take the positions they do, how they affect media coverage and public policy development, and the degree to which they affect decision making. These are critically important questions about the role of business in environmental policy, and Corporate America and Environmental Policy significantly advances our understanding of them."—Michael Kraft, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay

"Kamieniecki's book is more thorough and inclusive than any other work on the link between business and environmental policy. The extent of influence of business groups in environmental and natural resource policy is a highly contested area, and the author's analysis is quite balanced."—Helen Ingram, University of California, Irvine
