About this book

The Great Lakes are suffering increasingly severe environmental degradation and resource contamination. Using original findings from surveys, interviews, and other documents, Sproule-Jones looks at how various levels of government are attempting to restore the environment in the Great Lakes. He examines successes and failures and identifies the kinds of institutions that promote sound decision making, concluding that bureaucracies charged with constructing these institutions often overlook key design principles.
