Acting as if Tomorrow Matters

John Dernbach

In his previous book, the well-received and often-quoted Agenda for a Sustainable America (2009), John Dernbach made more than a hundred recommendations for making the United States more environmentally sustainable. Yet it is increasingly clear that the modest progress made by the United States since the Earth Summit in 1992 is not caused by the absence of specific and feasible policy recommendations. What we need to do is well known. How we are going to do it is much less clear.Acting as if Tomorrow Matters is a guide to making the United States environmentally sustainable. It is based on the views of more than four dozen nationally known experts in a variety of fields. Synthesizing answers to essential questions about sustainability, Dernbach provides an empirically based framework to explain the progress made in the United States to date on sustainability, including a description of the most significant obstacles to rapid and increased success.Building on the framework that has guided real progress so far, Dernbach explains in detail how to make a greater variety of more sustainable decisions even more attractive, how law can provide an even better enabling environment for sustainability, and how public opinion and leadership can more effectively be engaged to support sustainability. The book thus provides a checklist of ideas and opportunities for moving toward sustainable development-starting now.

Administrative Law

Andrew F. Popper

Administrative Law: A Contemporary Approach, 4th Edition is a comprehensive reorganization and updating of the 3rd edition, written just as administrative law was becoming the centerpiece in a national discourse on governance. From 2017 forward, nothing seemed settled. What are the metes and bounds of presidential power? Of congress? Of the courts? Judicial confirmation hearings made Chevron, separation of powers, and federalism everyday concerns, but somewhere, in the core of this challenge to governance, the fundamentals of the administrative law field proved up to the task.The 4th edition provides a current, comprehensive, and apolitical presentation of the substance and promise of administrative law. The book honors and retains the traditional materials while integrating 24 new principal cases and hundreds of references to lower court cases and executive actions.The casebook begins with the basics of administrative law and the arguments favoring and opposing regulation. The text then moves to the powers of the presidency and the Congress, and concise chapters exploring rulemaking, adjudication, and judicial review thereof. In this interactive casebook, students have access to 260 multiple choice questions and answers organized by chapter, "blue boxes" that highlight major points, and a new feature, "recent sightings," allowing students to see how and where cases decided decades ago are still of meaningful consequence.
