Environmental Politics by Norman Miller

Book Description

The second edition of Environmental Politics: Stakeholders, Interests, and Policymaking shows students that environmental politics is fundamentally a clash of competing stakeholders' interests, and environmental policy the result of their reconciliation. But developments in environmental policymaking over the past several years have been little short of earthshaking. The text not only marks changes in the formal lawmaking process itself, but covers recent elements reshaping environmental politics, such as: * the new environmentally activist posture of business * the dramatic shift of policymaking influence from the federal to state and local levels * the participation of new actors on the environmental policy stage, most notably the faith community * the U-turn of organized labor, from opponent of environmentalists to their collaborator * the consolidation of the varying missions of environmental advocacy groups to fight global warming * the emergence of science from its historic political neutrality to open advocacy * the increasing role of both the media and the judiciary Written by an expert with more than 25 years of "smoke-filled room" experience in environmental policymaking, Environmental Politics: Stakeholders, Interests, and Policymaking gives students an insider's view of how policies are forged. By examining current environmental issues through a stakeholder lens, this book not only provides a unique perspective into how policies are adopted, but also illuminates the transformative power of global warming as a political force.
