Available this summer in its eighth edition, Rosenbaum’s classic, comprehensive text once more provides definitive coverage of environmental politics and policy, lively case material, and a balanced assessment of current environmental issues. Notable revisions include: • A completely revamped energy chapter covering conventional energy policy as well as a comparative examination of alternatives to current energy production. • Expanded discussion of current U.S. climate change policy with attention to the role of the states, the impact of global environmental politics, and emerging technologies on policy alternatives. • Analysis of the Obama administration’s energy agenda and its profound differences from Bush administration policies and the practical difficulties of creating an effective political coalition in support of the new policy agenda. • Greater emphasis on executive-congressional relations in the policy-making cycle. • Examination of changes in the environmental movement, with particular attention to newly emerging cleavages over energy and climate issues. • A thorough updating of all policy chapters, including an examination of such topics as “mountain top removal,” the emergence of Bisphenol A as an endocrine disruptor issue, and the “new NIMBYism.” New and revised tables, figures, and other data illustrate key environmental information while a new, detailed timeline frames the initial chapter’s historical narrative of evolving environmental policy.

This exciting new text for the Environmental Politics and/or Policy course(s) does not just look at this subject from a U.S. perspective, but an international one, expanding upon and reflecting the globalization of this important area of study. Using the comparative approach, students will learn about environmental issues but not without a larger context. Included in the comparative examination are post-industrial countries, developing countries, post-Communist countries, and of course, the U.S. In addition, chapters on science (what science is and how it fits into the political context), international law, and emerging issues (such as women and the environment) make this a strong and exciting text.

This volume of original essays tells the story of how the agenda of the environmental movement in America has changed from the time Rachel Carson sounded her famous clarion call in the early 1960s up to our current era when the &"globalization&" of environmental issues has affected both the severity of the problems we all face and the political difficulty of dealing with them. Besides the editor, whose Introduction and Epilogue frame the book, the contributors include well-known journalist Roy Beck, activist/civil servant Leon Kolankiewicz, environmental scholar Michael E. Kraft, historian Martin V. Melosi, and political scientist David Vogel.This volume was originally published as a special issue of The Journal of Policy History.
