Environmental Politics Casebook: Genetically Modified Foods includes testimony, journal and newspaper articles, book chapters, and interest group communications such as press releases and on-line briefs, as well as other studies and reports that constitute the principal elements of the public debate on the genetic modification of food. A companion to Environmental Politics: Interest Groups, the Media, and the Making of Policy, it provides the substantive, detailed, case-in-point application for practices and principles previously discussed only in theory, keeping the basic text compact and current.


"…likely to illuminate the policy-making process much better than standard texts…As a person who regularly teaches environmental policy courses at several universities, I believe that this book [will] quickly fill a need…for a better approach to presenting politics and policy. I also like the combination of a standard textbook and companion casebooks, which will allow this text to be used in a wide variety of subjects…I would personally assign and use this text for my next environmental policy course."

-Michael Catania, Esq., former Deputy Commissioner, New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
