Many Americans today view the government as the savior of the environment. When it comes to protecting land, fish, and wildlife, the common response is to let government do it. The contributors to Government Versus the Environment encourage us to consider government in a different light by looking at clear instances of public programs that foster environmental destruction. They provide an in-depth look at of how the political process can adversely impact the quality of our environment and argue that the government's track record in managing natural resources has been and continues to be abysmal. The case studies in Government Versus the Environment will cause readers to think twice about the all-too-familiar calls for more government for the sake of the environment.

In this best-selling collection of essays, a team of distinguished contributors seeks to explain the most important developments in environmental policy and politics since the 1960s, and to analyze the central issues that face us in the new century. Environmental Policy focuses on underlying trends, institutional frameworks and shortcomings, and policy dilemmas that citizens and lawmakers face in attempting to resolve environmental controversies. This new fourth edition has been thoroughly revised to include the latest data, research, and policy initiatives in the field. Readers interested in President Clinton's environmental record, or those wondering how the "Republican Revolution" and attempts to downsize the federal government will affect environmental policy will find helpful new insights in this new edition. Two new chapters focus on climate change and the "new era" in natural resource policies. The theme of sustainable development -- the reconciliation of environmental goals with economic necessities -- receives attention throughout.
