"A comprehensive analysis of diverse areas of scholarly research on U.S. environmental policy and politics, this Handbook looks at the key ideas, theoretical frameworks, empirical findings and methodological approaches to the topic. Leading environmental policy scholars emphasize areas of emerging research and opportunities for future enquiry. Separated into five distinct thematic sections, the Handbook moves from examining political institutions, to politics and behaviour, policy tools and strategies, climate change, and finally ideas and challenges. Individually, each chapter provides readers with a clear synthesis of current research on a specific environmental policy topic. Together, they offer a thorough review of the current landscape of research in the field. Environmental studies and politics scholars will find the key case studies and in-depth theoretical discussions in this Handbook of great use. It will also be interesting reading for US policy-makers and those working in the media looking for a deeper understanding of the current state of affairs"-- Provided by publisher.
