Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] wonderful book. Durant's opus is a must read for scholars, policy practitioners, and students of government and organizational behavior." -- Review of Policy Research



"[The] insight, organization, and analytic rigor of Durant's book could not be clearer or more compelling. This is an important and well crafted piece of high-quality scholarship. Anyone with an interest in environmental policy and or organizational change will learn a great deal from this work." -- Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory



"The book is a powerful case study of an institution (the military) with a long and storied history of how that institution responded to change." -- Public Organization Review



"For those who may have formed impressions of the Pentagon's progress, or lack thereof, in becoming greener, this highly readable and accessible book is an indispensable resource." -- Kent E. Portney, professor of political science, Tufts University



" The Greening of the U.S. Military helps to add energy, depth, and luster to academic studies of policy history, bureaucratic politics, and public management." -- Michael Barzelay, professor of public management, London School of Economics and Political Science



"[A] highly significant contribution to analysis and understanding of organizational change in government." -- Hal G. Rainey, Alumni Foundation Distinguished Professor, The University of Georgia



"A very well-written book describing the attempts to instill a 'beyond compliance' environmental culture in the military and the forces that shape these efforts. In short, no book is as up-to-date and extensive or as theoretical. The scholarship is superior." -- Denise Scheberle, professor of public and environmental affairs, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 6, 2008
Format: Paperback
Defense environmental policy is revealed in an unusual combination of military and environmental history title recommended as a pick for college-level collections strong in either military or environmental history. Here are over 100 interviews and pages of supporting documents, reports, and trade newsletter accounts charting battles both political and military over environmental and resource laws and military interests. Chapters focus on modern efforts to 'green' the military and its processes, and come from a professor of public administration and policy who analyzes security issues and environmental influences on policymaking decisions and processes.
