Description

The Environmental Protection Agency: From Nixon to Clinton seeks to uncover the mistaken premises upon which errant policy decisions have been founded. Through its comprehensive chronicle of the agency's evolution, it uniquely and expertly depicts the serious consequences which have resulted from poor policy decisions, and discusses which questions the EPA should be encouraged to ask, and how they can be encouraged to do so. With new chapters on the Bush and Clinton administrations, it is the only comprehensive history of the EPA, tracing the agency from its founding under Nixon to its current role in the Clinton administration.show more
