Editorial Reviews

Investigates the effectiveness of environmental policy within the European Union at the dawn of the 21st century. Development of environmental policy, including the policymaking process, is analyzed from a historical perspective, then implementation and enforcement are examined. Provides insight into problems of reconciling differing national interests and presents proposals for environmental policy in the future. Concludes that what is needed is not more radical measures, but an opportunity for measures already in place to be effectively implemented. The authors teach European studies at the University of Lincolnshire and Humberside, UK. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
