Description

Lively wit and wisdom from the Books columnists in The Environmental Forum, the policy journal for environmental professionals

Best of the Books is a series of 60 essays and book reviews originally published in the Environmental Law Institute’s policy journal, The Environmental Forum. Written by columnists Oliver A. Houck and G. Tracy Mehan III, two longtime observers and developers of environmental policy, this anthology provides thoughtful and insightful pieces that reflect where we are now in the struggle to harmonize our environmental and economic aspirations.

As William D. Ruckelshaus, the first U.S. EPA Administrator, writes in the foreword: "If you find yourself interested in the environment and thirsting for more information about what is meant by being an environmentalist, this is the book for you. If you want to understand the multitude of complex issues different players in the debates—heroes and villains—then read on. What you will find is the rich and fascinating unfolding of a movement that in its modern form is now over 50 years old."

Best of the Books will serve as an excellent source for anyone needing a canon of recent literature on the modern environmental movement and the legal structures supporting it.
