Toward sustainable communities : transition and transformations in environmental policy( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 2,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: This analysis of U.S. environmental policy offers a conceptual framework that serves as a valuable roadmap to the array of laws, programs, and approaches developed over the last four decades. Combining case studies and theoretical discussion, the book views environmental policy in the context of three epochs: the rise of command-and-control federal regulation in the 1970s, the period of efficiency-based reform efforts that followed, and the more recent trend toward sustainable development and integrated approaches at local and regional levels. It assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the new approaches and places these experiments within the larger framework of an emerging trend toward community sustainability. Toward Sustainable Communities assesses environmental policy successes and failures at the subnational, regional, and state levels and offers eight case studies of policy arenas in which transformations have been occurring-from air and water pollution control and state and local climate change policy to open space preservation, urban growth, and regional ecosystem management. It discusses the various meanings of sustainability and whether the concept can serve as a foundation for a new era of environmental policy. The second edition has been substantially updated, with five new chapters (including the chapter on climate change) and all other chapters revised and shortened. It is suitable as a primary or secondary text for environmental policy courses and as a resource for scholars and policymakers

Business and environmental policy : corporate interests in the American political system by Michael E Kraft( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this work, scholars and policy experts examine the extent of business influence on environmental policy and the effect of corporate lobbying on public opinion, congressional action, agency policy making, court intervention, and state and local government. It is well known that American businesses make an effort to influence environmental policy by attempting to set the political agenda and to influence regulations and legislation. This book examines what is not so well known: the extent to which business succeeds in its policy interventions. In "Business and Environmental Policy", a team of distinguished scholars systematically analyzes corporate influence at all stages of the policy process, focusing on the factors that determine the success or failure of business lobbying in Congress, state legislatures, local governments, federal and state agencies, and the courts. These experts consider whether business influence is effectively counterbalanced by the efforts of environmental groups, public opinion, and other forces. The book also examines the use of the media to influence public opinion - as in the battle over drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge - and corporations' efforts to sway elections by making campaign contributions. Because, the book goes well beyond the existing literature - much of which is narrow, descriptive, and anecdotal - to provide broad-based empirical evidence of corporate influence on environmental policy, it makes an original and important contribution and is appropriate for a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses
Coming clean : information disclosure and environmental performance by Michael E Kraft( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors find that TRI - probably the best-known example of information disclosure - has had a substantial effect over time on the environmental performance of industry. But, drawing on case studies from across the nation, they show that the improvement is not uniform: some facilities have been leaders while others have been laggards. The authors argue that information disclosure has an important role to play in environmental policy--but only as part of an integrated set of policy tools that includes conventional regulation."--Pub. desc
Public policy : politics, analysis, and alternatives by Michael E Kraft( Book )

52 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public policy textbooks need to give students a thorough explanation of the policy process, but why do so many relegate policy analysis to a single, final chapter or not cover it at all? In the third edition of their innovative text, Kraft and Furlong take a decidedly different tack. They introduce and integrate an evaluative approach to policy throughout their text, encouraging critical and creative thinking on issues ranging from economic policy and the financial bailout to homeland security and natural disasters. Public Policy starts with the basics and concisely reviews institutions, policy actors, and major theoretical models. The authors then discuss the nature of policy analysis and its practice, and show students how to employ evaluative criteria in six substantive policy areas. At its core, Public Policy guides students through policy alternatives, arming them with analytic tools for understanding how the motivations of policy actors¿both within and outside of government¿influence a complex, yet comprehensible, policy agenda
