For over a quarter century, the federal government has been the primary determinant of environmental regulation and policy. The contributors to this volume provide a wide variety of strategies to challenge Washington's unsophisticated, ineffective, and harmful approaches. The original essays demonstrate how states can improve environmental regulations as they apply to land, water, wildlife, and pesticides, and they provide a general framework for how states can regain control of their environmental destiny. Important reading for anyone interested in environmental policy studies.

This volume is worth reading not only for its provocative ideas but also because its topic couldn't be more timely.

Environmental Federalism provides much useful information for people interested in hastening the transfer of responsibility for environmental quality control to state and local governments.
