Overview

Sirgo (political science, McNee State U., Louisiana) takes the development of environmental policy over the past half-century as a case study to investigate how issues get placed on the political agenda in the US and what determines whether they endure. Morris K. Udall (1922-98) and Stewart L. Udall (b. 1920) both held offices germane to environmental policy, he says, and their political careers demonstrate how officeholders respond to demands from the political environment in such a fashion as to alter the nation's political agenda permanently. In succession, they served as Democrats from Arizona in the US House of Representatives from 1954 to 1991. The text is double spaced. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
