Focusing on the Environmental Defense Fund and Environmental Action,... Voices and Echoes for the Environment examines the implications, especially for relations between leaders and rank and file, of the massive growth in membership and budgets since the 1960s...

Shaiko has written the definitive work on environmental lobbies.

Voices and Echoes for the Environment is a must-read for anyone who follows environmental policy or interest group politics.
