“A sophisticated, comprehensive, and informative analysis of the role of business in shaping American environmental policy. This collection of essays makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the complex political, legal, and institutional dynamics that underlie the making and implementation of environmental regulation, as well as the political role and influence of business in American politics.”
David Vogel, Haas School of Business and Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
Business and Environmental Policy offers a lucid, timely, and insightful analysis of the complex and varied roles that business can play in environmental policy making. These essays provide a refreshing look at a subject to which conventional wisdom does not always apply. It is an outstanding contribution to the literature on environmental politics, as well as that on business and government more generally.”
Daniel J. Fiorino, American University
“There is relatively little scholarship on the roles that business and industry play in shaping environmental and resource policy. The editors and authors of this volume have put together a remarkably good contribution to this field. This is an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses in environemental policy and in business schools. It is pitched at the right level, the writing is very engaging, it's well-organized, and the length is just fine. As an instructor, I can't wait to use it.”
Daniel Press, Professor and Chair, Environmental Studies Department, University of California, Santa Cruz
