Format: Hardcover
Milazzo has captured the evolution of clean water law superbly. Not only does he give the reader an excellent overview of the early efforts to enact clean water legislation but he captures the significant controversies and compromises involved in the 1972 Federal Water Pollution Control Act amendments. As the Senate staff author of those amendments and the person responsible for converting the policy decisions of the Senate Committee members in to legislative language I can vouch for the accuracy of Milazzo's history. As a key participant in the 45 conference committee meetings which finally resulted in the amendments I was impressed by his recitation of the events and controversies which characterized the negotiations. While any history of this kind must omit some of the essential debates none has captured so many so well. Leon G. Billings.

Format: Hardcover
I've wondered for years how Senator Edmund Muskie -- not previously known for his environmental interests -- became the key player in producing the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. This fine scholarly book gives the answer and provides a look at the long-neglected role of congressional leaders in the post-World War II environmental movement.
