Title: Season of spoils: the Reagan Administration's attack on the environment

Abstract

Six national environmental organizations supported this denunciation of the Reagan Administration's environmental policies. Presiding over a new era of less governmental participation, Reagan failed to understand the need for environmental regulation in his effort to release industry from constraints on production. The story of the people, notably Anne Gorsuch and James Watt, chosen to implement this policy and how they pursued their task is the result of interviews with over 400 people who took part in the events. Following an introductory chapter on policy goals, separate chapters deal with Anne Gorsuch and the Environmental Protection Agency scandal, hazardous waste dumps and pesticides, public land leasing, the national parks, examples of such mistakes as the nuclear porkbarrel, and a conclusion that personnel changes have thwarted, but not converted administration goals. Nearly 50 pages of source notes and references include telephone and personal interviews.
