Editorial Reviews

Review

"The message of this book is a clear and valuable counterpoint to those rushing to find market-based solutions to environmental protection. Cohen, Kamieniecki, and Cahn demonstrate that regulation can work extremely well without undermining business and the economy. However, absent a strategic planning approch to implementing regulatory strategies -- a blueprint which they provide -- the hoped for environmental improvements stand little chance of being realized. This is an important book for the new and seasoned in the debate over the efficacy of regulatory environmental strategies."--Daniel A. Mazmanian, Bedrosian Chair in Governance, University of Southern California



"Useful and accessible for policy practitioners and students alike, Strategic Planning in Environmental Regulation offers a realistic, pragmatic guide to strategic environmental policymaking it should serve as an important companion (and in some cases, corrective!) to policy analysis texts. In addition to providing excellent histories of MTBE and other underground storage-tank dilemmas, the book sheds much-needed light on environmental policy implementation, and in the process shows why optimism about some policy strategies really is warranted." Daniel Press, Professor and Chair, Environmental Studies Department, University of California, Santa Cruz



"Portney's book is essential reading for anyone interested the sustainable cities movement in the United States. For scholars it provides a valuable conceptual framework and impressive empirical analysis. For practitioners and activists it provides a wealth of insights and illuminating examples from cities in the forefront of the movement, as well as critical benchmarks by which their own efforts can be gauged."--Daniel A. Mazmanian, Bedrosian Chair in Governance, University of Southern California



"An excellent, welcome addition to the environmental policy and adminsitration literature. This book is well conceived, edited, and written. It pulls together an impressive collection of essays from most of the leading scholars writing on environmental policy today. It articulates, all in one place, a progressive, informed, and intelligent environmental governance reform agenda. I especially appreciated the book's breadth in discussing governance problems (and reform opportunities) in the U.S. today. It's really all there -- participatory reforms, administrative changes, policy tool reforms, and institutional constraints."--Daniel Press, Professor and Chair, Environmental Studies Department, University of California, Santa CruzPlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote.
