This book is perfect for anyone interested in public policy and/or the environment. Weingart objectively reports on how the public reacted to the Siting Board's activities and how the Board unsuccessfully tried to alleviate the public's fears. This is a GREAT book for the classroom because it is an example of how the real world works. Not only is this book ideal for public policy and political science classes, but it is also great for chemical and environmental engineering classes since working with the community and government is so important in these areas.
Make a special note of all the creative and interesting headlines and opposition flyers the Siting Board had to deal with as they traveled from town to town looking for the right place to build the facility!
