Through its 15 carefully constructed cases, the book gives readers a first-hand look at some of the most interesting landmark and illuminating new controversies in U.S. environmental policy making. In her new section "New Issues, New Politics," Layzer adds two brand new cases: The Deepwater Horizon Disaster: The High Cost of Offshore Oil; and Fracking Wars: Local and State Responses to Unconventional Shale Gas Development. Lazyer provides maps, tables, figures, questions to consider, recommended readings, and useful websites to help students think critically about environmental policy and to facilitate further research.

"Layzer's analysis is objective and thorough, providing valuable context and content for students to better understand environmental problems. Her reliance on a rich variety of data and sources provides students with a springboard for further analysis and research."

-- Melinda A. Mueller

"The book's primary strength lies in how well the author is able to link academic theory and discussion to real-life cases. The cases offer a thorough and interesting perspective on current environmental issues. [Students] often say in class that they enjoy reading the cases and find them very thorough and clear. They have specifically mentioned the level of detail and that it is helpful to them."
