Nature Unbound: Bureaucracy vs. the Environment - Randy T. Simmons; Ryan M. Yonk; Kenneth J. Sim
Call Number: KF3775 .S547 2016
ISBN: 159813227X
Publication Date: 2016
Two themes guide us--political ecology and political entrepreneurship. Combining these two concepts, which we develop in some detail, leads us to recognize that sometimes in their original design and certainly in their implementation, major U.S. environmental laws are more about opportunism and ideology than good management and environmental improvement.

Environment in the Balance: The Green Movement and the Supreme Court - Jonathan Z. Cannon
Call Number: KF3775 .C36 2015
ISBN: 0674736788
Publication Date: 2015
Presenting a new account from a legal perspective, Environment in the Balance interprets a wide range of U.S. Supreme Court decisions, along with social science research and the literature of the movement, to gauge the practical and cultural impact of environmentalism and its future prospects. Jonathan Z. Cannon demonstrates that from the 1960s onward, the Court's rulings on such legal issues as federalism, landowners' rights, standing, and the scope of regulatory authority have reflected deep-seated cultural differences brought out by the mass movement to protect the environment.
