"This volume makes an important contribution to the literature of law and public policy. It provides a wide-ranging look at an important and controversial agency as it has interacted with the courts and lawyers across the range of critical environmental policies. A very useful analysis." --Phillip J. Cooper "An interesting analysis of EPA's early history, coupled with an analysis of cross-pressures from corporations and environmental intervenor groups, makes the study valuable." --Choice "O'Leary, who teaches public administration at Syracuse University, presents case studies of judicial/EPA interaction in such environmental policy areas as water quality, hazardous waste, toxic substances, pesticides and air pollution. Moving from the specific to the general in the final chapter, she discusses the cumulative effects of federal court rulings on EPA policies and administration." --Publishers Weekly
