“This book has an excellent thematic framework and fine coverage of U.S. environmental politics over time. The case studies are superb and a great teaching resource. The Environmental Case is a wonderful resource of high and consistent quality.” — Daniel Fiorino”Layzer’s analysis is objective and thorough, providing valuable context and content for students to better understand environmental problems. Her reliance on a rich variety of data and sources provides students with a springboard for further analysis and research.”  — Melinda A. Mueller”The book’s primary strength lies in how well the author is able to link academic theory and discussion to real-life cases. The cases offer a thorough and interesting perspective on current environmental issues.  [Students] often say in class that they enjoy reading the cases and find them very thorough and clear. They have specifically mentioned the level of detail and that it is helpful to them.” — Rebecca Bromley-Trujillo

About the Author

Judith A. Layzer was professor of environmental policy in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) until her death in 2015. She earned a Ph.D. in political science at MIT. After four years at Middlebury College in Vermont she returned to MIT, where she taught courses in science and politics in environmental policymaking, ecosystem-based management, food systems and the environment, urban sustainability, energy and environmental politics, and public policy.Layzer’s research focused on several aspects of U.S. environmental politics, including the roles of science, values, and storytelling in environmental politics, as well as on the effectiveness of different approaches to environmental planning and management. A recent project asked: Do urban sustainability initiatives significantly reduce cities’ ecological footprints? And which aspects of “green cities” are most effective at reducing cities’ environmental impacts? In addition to The Environmental Case, Layzer was the author of Natural Experiments: Ecosystem-Based Management and the Environment (2008) and Open for Business: Conservatives’ Opposition to Environmental Regulation (2012).Layzer was an athlete as well as a scholar. In addition to having finished five Boston marathons, she shared nine national championship titles and one world championship trophy with her teammates on Lady Godiva, formerly Boston’s premier women’s Ultimate Frisbee team.Judith A.
