Overview

Democracy, Dialogue, and Environmental Disputes: The Contested Languages of Social Regulation by Bruce A. Williams, Albert R. Matheny

This book addresses the difficulties faced by environmental regulation, attributing them to competing ideas about regulatory legitimacy that have accompanied the growth of the American state. The authors propose a more complex and nuanced dialogue between all participants in regulatory policymaking, and they apply their analysis to case studies of actual environmental disputes over hazardous waste regulation in the 1980s and 1990s in New Jersey, Ohio, and Florida.
