Overview

Environmental Politics: Domestic & Global Dimensions takes the reader on a journey through the history, organizations, interests, and processes that shape U.S. and international environmental policy. The second edition has been restructured to allow for a more manageable framework, and revised to provide coverage of new initiatives, mainstream and alternative viewpoints, and more on the environmental policymaking model.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
To put environmental politics in context, it is important to understand how the recognition of environmental problems, and the attempts to devise solutions for these problems, make up the policy process. The authors use the policy process as a framework for reviewing the broad spectrum of environmental problems facing political leaders today. They discuss both the development of US policy and the globalization of environmental politics, particularly as manifested in international agreements and in the activities of the United Nations Environment Program. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
"A good introduction to political theory surrounding environmental policy development and an exceptional, very comprehensive historical review of the field of environmental policy. Few, if any, texts can match the breadth of the review topically and across both the domestic and global policy realms." — Len Broberg, Professor Environmental Studies Program, University of Montana

"Vaughn has produced a fascinating and insightful reader that has emerged as one of the leading undergraduate texts on environmental politics for years to come. Given that it is now in its sixth edition speaks volumes. It cleverly bridges the abstract with the concrete and the local with global. I highly recommend it." — Kristian P. Alexander, University of Utah
