"Barnett's excellent analysis of the Superfund program should be read by all those involved in the ongoing reauthorization debate."--Forum for Applied Research and Public Policy
"Barnett provocatively and convincingly argues that the political conflict that engulfs hazardous waste clean-up policy in the U.S. leads less often to effective compromise than it does to contradiction-ridden public policies that short both justice and social welfare. . . . This book should be of significant interest to environmental policy makers and scholars in environmental economics, environmental law, political science, public policy, and sociology."--Peter C. Yeager, Boston University
