About this book

The crisis of the Santa Barbara offshore oil spill in 1969 led to the passage of radically new environmental laws that made the United States an international leader in environmental protection at the time. Since then, environmental regulation has proved detrimental to both industrial and environmental performance. At the same time, the country has seen a deepening confrontation between environmental and industrial groups, causing a rift which spread to other areas of politics and society. This book traces the origin of the current conflict and carefully analyses current American environmental and resource policy. Placing strong emphasis on comparisons with more cooperative paths of environmental management in other advanced nations, in particular the EU, this is a highly intriguing volume for anyone interested in the politics of environmental protection.

Media reviews

Managing the environment has become an issue of such bitter partisanship in the U.S. that the prospects for further progress may seem bleak. Frank Manheim's detailed, even-handed, and historically grounded analysis offers a generous counterpoint to today's rancorous environmental politics. His book challenges Americans to look beyond domestic gridlock, and regain perspective by taking advantage of EU experience and building a sense of mission around the interlocking goals of climate stabilization, energy independence, and economic vitality. -Daniel Sarewitz, Director of the Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes, Arizona State University
