Editorial Reviews

Review

"A sophisticated, comprehensive, and informative analysis of the role of business in shaping American environmental policy. This collection of essays makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the complex political, legal, and institutional dynamics that underlie the making and implementation of environmental regulation, as well as the political role and influence of business in American politics." David Vogel, Haas School of Business and Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley



" Business and Environmental Policy offers a lucid, timely, and insightful analysis of the complex and varied roles that business can play in environmental policy making. These essays provide a refreshing look at a subject to which conventional wisdom does not always apply. It is an outstanding contribution to the literature on environmental politics, as well as that on business and government more generally." Daniel J. Fiorino , American University

Format: Paperback
This reads like a college textbook (which it very well may be), but I ordered it for personal research. It's very informative. Split into chapters dealing with different topics and varying viewpoints, the reader sees all sides of the issues discussed. It's not necessarily a fun read, but it's not staggeringly abstract either. I'd recommend it to college professors for their classes, and to anyone else trying to understand the collision of environmentalism, politics, and business in the United States.
