Covering both global threats - such as climate change, population growth, and loss of biodiversity - as well as domestic environmental issues and concerns, Environmental Policy and Politics offers a comprehensive examination of U.S. environmental politics and policy. Within these pages, students of environmental policy will find accessible, detailed coverage of it in the context of U.S. policy-making processes, the legislative and administrative settings for policy decisions, and the role of interest groups and public opinion in shaping environmental politics.
Drawing on an extensive collection of scientific studies, government reports, and policy analyses to provide the full scope of environmental issues to students, this unique text also employs a risk-based framework for policy analysis that encourages students to judge for themselves the significance of conditions and trends and the risks they pose.
Michael E. Kraft is Professor of Political Science and Public Affairs Emeritus and Herbert Fisk Johnson Professor of Environmental Studies Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of California, Riverside, and he received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Political Science from Yale University. From 1977 to 2013 he taught at UW-Green Bay, where he offered courses on environmental politics and policy, public policy analysis, Congress, and environmental science and policy. He also has held visiting faculty appointments at Oberlin College and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Among other works, he is co-author of Coming Clean: Information Disclosure and Environmental Performance (MIT Press 2011), co-author of Public Policy: Politics, Analysis, and Alternatives (CQ Press, 4th edition, 2013); and co-editor and contributing author of Environmental Policy (CQ Press, 8th ed., 2013); The Oxford Handbook of U.S. Environmental Policy (2013); Business and Environmental Policy (MIT Press, 2007); and Toward Sustainable Communities: Transition and Transformations in Environmental Policy (MIT Press, 2nd ed. 2009). He also serves as co-editor of a book series, American and Comparative Environmental Policy, at MIT Press.
Kraft’s research interests focus on U.S. environmental policy and politics, and his most recent project dealt with the impact of information disclosure programs on corporate environmental performance in the United States. It used the federal Toxics Release Inventory program to examine trends in toxic chemical releases and risk reduction at some 10,000 industrial facilities nationwide and the reasons for variation among firms, communities, and states. This research was funded by the National Science Foundation and was the focus of the book, Coming Clean, co-authored with Mark Stephan and Troy Abel. The book won the 2012 Lynton K. Caldwell Award from the American Political Science Association for the best book on environmental politics of the previous three years.
