Editorial Reviews


"The book does enlighten those unaware of how influence has created our economy of environmental protection services."-Ground Water

?The book does enlighten those unaware of how influence has created our economy of environmental protection services.?-Ground Water

"Even someone who finds much in this collection with which to disagree (as I do), will be stimulated by the authors' lively analysis and important arguments."- Professor Steven Kelman Kennedy School of Government Harvard University

"Just as people are imprisoned in the name of liberty, health may be harmed in the name of safety and her children stunted in the name of protecting Mother Nature. This excellent collection of essays will help readers distinguish helping and hurting."-Professor Aaron Wildavsky University of California, Berkeley

"There are two sides to every story, and here is one of them. These essays make the case that special interests of all kinds have contributed to the well-known inefficiency of environmental regulation. Some may disagree with this version of the story, especially those whose interests it gores, but everyone will benefit from hearing it."- Robert W. Fri President, Resources for the Future

"Of the sacred cows left, none is more consistently protected by the major media than the notion that environmental policy is shaped by a struggle between white hats (environmental groups and regulatory agencies) and black hats (industry and private property). This book demolishes this myth and in the process does a service for sound environmental protection. Anyone interested in environmental policy should read this book."- Francis S. Blake Former General Counsel Environmental Protection Agency
