From the publisher's announcement:
A balanced and accessibly written undergraduate text suitable for courses in environmental studies, political science and geography. It offers an overview of the key issues in environmental policy, particularly through a comparison of the UK, USA and Australia. Howes outlines how governments have responded to environmental risk through policy, and the ongoing tensions between science, industry, the state, social movements and electoral politics. He examines the key environmental issues and the claims of envirosceptics such as Bjorn Lomborg and offers a new strategy for making major administrative decisions in the face of uncertainty. In a clear manner he shows how to use Beck, Foucault and Dryzek to analyse environmental policy and he develops a new method for measuring the effectiveness of environmental governance.
This book successfully presents the policy elements of sustainable development and the difficulties of measuring progress against environmental risks.--B. C. Wyman, McNeese State University in CHOICE
