Taming Regulation: Superfund and the Challenge of Regulatory Reform
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungUnlike much of the existing literature on regulation, this book begins with the assumption that the governments capacity to utilize regulation as a policy tool is vital. It examines the questions of how to make the inherently coercive aspects of regulation more politically acceptable in the present antiregulatory environment and how the legal and administrative challenges of reform in ongoing regulatory programs might best be approached.

Pressestimmen"Superfund proves to be a useful case study in which to explore critical questions regarding regulatory reform... At a time when few scholars appear concerned with investigating regulatory practices, TAMING REGULATION makes an important contribution to regulation and environmental policy studies by investigating ways in which the uses of regulatory power can be made politically and practically acceptable. This book is a must read for individuals and policy-makers considering regulatory reform. It is also recommended for students interested in regulatory history and policy. It should not be overlooked by those interested in environmental policy and the phenomenon of Superfund." --Denise DeGarmo, Depart. of Political Science, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, The Law and Politics Book Review, 11/1/2004
