"This treatise offers an engaging text for the serious student of public policy who wants to understand environmental policy design from a technical, legal, and economic perspective. The analysis offers a penetratingly critical review of current policies and how we developed them, insightfully analyzing what works and what does not. Focused on chemical hazards, pollution, and industrial organization, the book addresses the fragmented, media-specific statutes with a fresh, innovation-driven technology approach that presents a positive, integrated, and solution-oriented vision for the next wave of policy development." --Ken Geiser, Ph.D., Director, Lowell Center for Sustainable Production and Founding Director of the Massachusetts Toxics Use Reduction Institute
