Contents Notes
1. Introduction -- 2. The Origins and Development of The Environmental Protection Agency -- 3. Revising the Ozone Standard / Marc Karnis Landy and Valle Nazar -- 4. Writing the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Regulations -- 5. Passing Superfund -- 6. Forging a Cancer Policy: The Interagency Regulatory Liaison Group / Marc Karnis Landy and Margaret Gerteis -- 7. The Steel Industry and Enforcing the Clean Air Act -- Conclusion: The Lessons of the Cases -- 8. The Reagan Administration -- 9. The Bush Administration -- 10. The Clinton Administration -- 11. The Wrong Questions and the Right Questions. Expanded to cover the Bush administration and the beginnings of the Clinton administration, this exploration of one of the most critical problems of modern government and democratic politics is now more timely than ever. Through careful analysis of representative cases, it evaluates the Environmental Protection Agency's performance over its entire existence, uncovers the mistaken premises that have clouded and distorted debate about environmental policy, and shows how public officials might better preserve and promote constitutional democracy.
