Inhaltsangabe: Guide to U.S. Environmental Policy provides the analytical connections showing readers how issues and actions are translated into public policies and persistent institutions for resolving or managing environmental conflict in the U.S. The guide highlights a complex decision-making cycle that requires the cooperation of government, business, and an informed citizenry to achieve a comprehensive approach to environmental protection. The book's topical, operational, and relational essays address development of U.S. environmental policies, the federal agencies and public and private organizations that frame and administer environmental policies, and the challenges of balancing conservation and preservation against economic development, the ongoing debates related to turning environmental concerns into environmental management, and the role of the U.S. in international organizations that facilitate global environmental governance.

Über den Autor: Sally K. Fairfax is Henry J. Vaux Distinguished Professor of Forest Policy, Emerita, at the College of Natural Resources, at the University of California in Berkeley. Trained as a political scientist and a forester, Dr. Fairfax is primarily interested in the evolution of the U.S. federal government and has pursued her inquiries in the context of property and land management-namely, the history and management of the public domain, public and private land conservation programs, and most recently, food systems and food justice. She has published the second edition of the standard undergraduate text in U.S. resource policy and management, Samuel T. Dana's classic Forest and Range Policy; the first comprehensive study of the school land grants, School Trust Lands (with Jon Souder); a major analysis of land acquisition as a conservation strategy, including land trusts, Buying Nature (with Lauren Gwin, Mary Ann King, Leigh Raymond, and Laura Watt); and, most recently, an assessment of the relationship between fine cuisine and food justice, California Cuisine and Just Food (with Louise Dyble, Greig Guthey, Lauren Gwin, Monica Moore, and Jennifer Sokolove). Professor Fairfax has also served as the Title IX Coordinator on the UC Berkeley campus and as Dean of Undergraduate Affairs in the College of Natural Resources. Dr. Fairfax is an avid photographer, traveler, and scuba diver. She currently is working on glass art, blowing, fusing, and torch work. Edmund Russell is the Joyce and Elizabeth Hall Distinguished Professor of United States History at the University of Kansas. Dr. Russell's research synthesizes environmental history, American history, global history, history of technology, and science. His first major research project focused on the environmental history of warfare, culminating in a pair of books (his War and Nature: Fighting Humans and Insects with Chemicals from World War I to Silent Spring and also Natural Enemy, Natural Ally: Toward an Environmental History of War), the latter co-edited with Richard Tucker. His second major project has focused on co-evolutionary history, or the study of ways in which people have altered the traits of populations of nonhuman species and how these alterations have circled back to change human experience. This project led to his book titled Evolutionary History: Uniting History and Biology to Understand Life on Earth. Dr. Russell's research has received prizes in environmental history, history of technology, and history of science from the American Society for Environmental History, the Forest History Society, the Society for the History of Technology, and the Forum for the History of Science in America, respectively. He is co-editor of the series Studies in Environment and History for Cambridge University Press, distinguished lecturer for the Organization of American Historians, life member of Clare Hall at Cambridge University, and extraordinary member of the Human Sciences Center of the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich.
