Overview

This survey of current issues and controversies in environmental policy and management is unique in its thematic mix, broad coverage of key debates and approaches, and in-depth analysis of concepts treated less thoroughly in other texts. The contributing authors, all distinguished scholars or practitioners, offer a comprehensive examination of key topics in environmental governance today, including perspectives from environmental economics, democratic theory, public policy, law, political science, and public administration. Environmental Governance
Reconsidered is the first book to integrate these wide-ranging topics and perspectives thematically in one volume.Many are calling for a change in the bureaucratic, adversarial, technology-based regulatory approach that is the basis for much environmental policy -- a move from "rule-based" to
"results-based" regulation. Each of the thirteen chapters in Environmental Governance Reconsidered critically examines one aspect of this "second generation" of environmental reform, assesses its promise-versus-performance to date, and points out future challenges and opportunities. The first section of the book, "Reconceptualizing Purpose," discusses the concepts of sustainability, global interdependence, the precautionary principle, and common pool resource theory. The second section,
"Reconnecting with Stakeholders," examines deliberative democracy, civic environmentalism,
environmental justice, property rights and regulatory takings, and environmental conflict resolution. The final section, "Redefining Administrative Rationality," analyzes devolution,
regulatory flexibility, pollution prevention, and third-party environmental management systems auditing. This book will benefit students, scholars, managers, natural resource specialists,
policymakers, and reformers and is ideal for class adoption.

Journal of Politics
"The editors of the volume set out to acheive an ambitious objective and succeed masterfully...The volume offers a well-integrated collection of essays of interest to those concerned with environmental politics...Such an accomplishment makes the text readily accessible to a general audience; one would expect that it will become a standard text for many college courses examining environmetnal politics as well as a valuable source for scholars interested in further exploring the changing nature of environmental governance."
