Summary

Examines how the modern presidency has responded to environmental concerns.

The Environmental Presidency develops a systematic understanding of how presidents have influenced the development of environmental and natural resource policy through an examination of environmental behavior and interaction patterns between the president and the American people. Looking at five presidential roles--Commander in Chief, Chief Diplomat, Opinion and Party Leader, Chief Legislator, and Chief Executive--the authors show how the modern presidency has redefined the relative strengths of each role in response to the political salience of the environment.

"This book is NEEDED for environmental politics courses, and for presidency courses as well. There is nothing even remotely like this book available, and it tells a thorough story about the development of U.S. environmental policy and the evolution of the presidency that is both interesting and well done." -- Nicholas Lovvich, Washington State University

"The Environmental Presidency addresses a neglected area in presidency studies and does so in an original, methodological way." -- Larry Berman, University of California, Davis
