About this book

With a new foreword by Lynton Keith Caldwell, in "Managing the Environmental Crisis", William R. Mangun and Daniel H. Henning provide a balanced and comprehensive guide to the management of complex environmental and natural resource policy issues. Taking into account new developments, trends, and issues that have arisen in recent years, the authors begin with the recognition, often overlooked, that it is not the environment that needs to be managed but human action relating to the environment. The authors review issues associated with a range of environmental policy concerns, including energy considerations, renewable and non renewable resource management, pollution control, wilderness management, and urban and regional policy. The history of these issues, recent actions pertaining to their management, difficulties associated with their continued presence, and the consequences of a failure to address these concerns are explored. Though focused on specific political issues, Mangun and Henning direct their attention to two large-scale trends: globalisation and the political polarization of the environmental movement. At the level of the decision-making process, the incorporation of values-specifically addressed from multicultural and cross-disciplinary perspectives-is also discussed. International in scope, the book provides descriptions of the roles of both governmental and non-governmental organizations in the formulations and implementation of national and global environmental policy. This thoroughly revised second edition discusses various successes in the arenas of environmental co-operation and management strategy while pointing to the new challenges that have emerged in the last decade.
