Available this summer in its Eighth Edition, RosenbaumÆs classic, comprehensive text once more provides definitive coverage of environmental politics and policy, lively case material, and a balanced assessment of current environmental issues. Notable revisions include: - A completely revamped energy chapter covering conventional energy policy as well as a comparative examination of alternatives to current energy production. ò Expanded discussion of current U.S. climate change policy with attention to the role of the states, the impact of global environmental politics, and emerging technologies on policy alternatives. ò Analysis of the Obama administrationÆs energy agenda and its profound differences from Bush administration policies and the practical difficulties of creating an effective political coalition in support of the new policy agenda. ò Greater emphasis on executive-congressional relations in the policy-making cycle. ò Examination of changes in the environmental movement, with particular attention to newly emerging cleavages over energy and climate issues. ò A thorough updating of all policy chapters, including an examination of such topics as ômountain top removal,ö the emergence of Bisphenol A as an endocrine disruptor issue, and the ônew NIMBYism.ö New and revised tables, figures, and other data illustrate key environmental information while a new, detailed timeline frames the initial chapterÆs historical narrative of evolving environmental policy.

»Die Buchsensation des Jahres.« Focus Im September 2007 hält Randy Pausch, Informatik-Professor an der Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, seine Abschiedsvorlesung. Das Thema: Seine Kindheitsträume und wie er sie verwirklicht hat. Der Anlass: Pausch ist unheilbar an Krebs erkrankt. Kurz darauf kennen Millionen Menschen ihn und seine bewegende Rede. Das vorliegende Buch, für das die »Last Lecture« den Anstoß gegeben hat, ist in Gesprächen mit dem Journalisten Jeffrey Zaslow entstanden. Darin sind die Lebenseinsichten Pauschs mit seiner persönlichen Lebensgeschichte verwoben. Wie man seine Träume verwirklicht und anderen dabei hilft – ein beeindruckendes Beispiel für Optimismus und Lebensbejahung.
