Epilogue: EPA Enforcement in the Clinton Administration. "This book offers the first comprehensive history of a difficult and often neglected part of EPA's responsibilities - the enforcement of federal environmental standards. Drawing on extensive interviews with the political appointees, administrators, and staff who have provided the agency's direction, as well as his own professional experience with EPA, Joel A. Mintz explores the historical evolution of the agency's enforcement program, its institutional setting within the larger political arena, and its current strengths and shortcomings." "This history will be important reading for students of political science, public policy, environmental law, administrative law, anthropology, sociology, and related fields. It should also be read by attorneys who represent parties in enforcement cases initiated by EPA, by the agency's own managers and professional staff, and by public citizens concerned with environmental issues."--Jacket.
