Editorial Reviews

Review

College-level students of environmental science...[and] political science students -- especially those working on the global scale -- will also find it invaluable.

(Midwest Book Review)

Cohen proposes a conceptual framework for policy analysis that explicitly looks at values, political concerns, science and technology aspects, policy design and economic issues, and operational management...It would be a good choice for a (multidisciplinary) graduate seminar.

(Choice)

Those working within the field may benefit from its big picture approach to diagnosing several environmental ills...consistent emphasis upon the role of environmental values in policy analysis and development should be commended.

(Steve Vanderheiden Environmental Ethics 1900-01-00)

Format: Paperback
College-level students of environmental science will find Understanding Environmental Policy a scholarly, detailed analysis of the structure of such policy development around the world. Cohen uses his background as a director of the Master of Public Administration program in Environmental Science to analyze not just scientific policy development, but its global political ramifications and influences, with chapters surveying policy implementation, political issues, regulation strategy approaches, and much more. Political science students - especially those working on the global scale - will also find it invaluable.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By L. Mark Hoerrner on May 5, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Professor Cohen (Now a vice-dean at Columbia University) presents a very easy to read and understand framework for interpreting environmental issues. To illustrate this, he applies his framework to a number of cases - toxic spills, the New York garbage crisis and more which underlines the different policy angles from which a specific environmental issue can be viewed. I highly recommend this book to any undergrad studying environmental policy and any graduate student looking to use a specific methodology for research.

This past winter I read the book above [Understanding Environmental Policy] thoroughly and really like the clarity of the "framework". It was especially useful how professor Cohen concludes with a call for constant improvement of the framework model and ultimately "manage" the situation/condition appropriately.
