About this book

This useful book is designed to teach natural resources professionals how to be more effective in solving conservation and environmental policy problems. Its presentation of basic concepts, case studies, and "real world concerns" provides a deeper understanding of the policy process and makes The Policy Process an invaluable aid for students and practitioners in such fields as wildlife biology, conservation biology, forestry, range management, ecosystem management, and sustainable development.

Susan G. Clark begins by describing the challenges faced by natural resources professionals. She then explains how the substance and process of policy analysis and decision making can be improved by using a policy sciences framework that takes into account biological, social, political, and institutional considerations. Finally she reflects on how issues of human rights and morality should affect natural resources management and policy analysis. The Policy Process is very user-friendly.

Media reviews

"A valuable book that finally makes Laswell's policy sciences framework accessible to thousands of students and practitioners in a wide range of technically-trained fields, who confront the messiness of the policy process but until now have not had a systematic and broadly applicable framework for analyzing and navigating through it."
– David Pelletier, Nutritional Sciences, Cornell University

"The best primer on how the resource analyst, manager, or activist should understand natural resource policy issues and operate effectively in the policy process."
– William Ascher, Duke University

"Provides [a] prototype for future policy sciences applications and much-needed practical guidance for natural resource conservation professionals [...] Clark is the ideal author for a work of this sort [...] Ideal for use in the classroom at the graduate or even advanced undergraduate level. Its format, clear language, and explicit connection between theory and case material make it a challenging but invigorating read for students who have some experience with policy sciences or policy analysis theory. I have used the book three times in an upper level undergraduate seminar on the application of policy sciences to environmental studies – admittedly a forum in which I was initially uncertain about the best method for teaching policy sciences. For students of natural resource policy, The Policy Process was ideal [...] The framework chapters especially lend themselves to vigorous discussion of how to apply the theory in practice. Because Clark uses case studies so adeptly in each chapter, the book has helped my students become skillful in applying the frameworks to other case materials [...] [Positioned] to make a landmark contribution to promoting policy sciences theory and practice."
– Richard L. Wallace, Policy Sciences
