A Good Life on a Finite Earth

The Political Economy of Green Growth

Studies Comparative Energy and Environ

Daniel J. Fiorino, Director, Center for Environmental Policy, School of Public Affairs, American University

Key Features

  • Provides an accessible overview of ecological policy
  • The first book to offer a systematic analysis of the concept of green growth
  • Disrupts the assumed conflict between economic and environmental goals, arguing that they can be complementary

About this book

The potential conflict among economic and ecological goals has formed the central fault line of environmental politics in the United States and most other countries since the 1970s. This offers a stark choice between prosperity and growth, on the one hand, and ecological degradation on the other. But as Daniel J. Fiorino examines in this book, the concept of green growth provides an alternative path that focuses on ecological and economic balance. While he focuses on the United States, Fiorino will also draw comparisons to green growth policy in other countries, including Germany, China, and Brazil.

Readership

Undergraduate and graduate students, scholars, and general readers interested in the areas of environmental politics, public policy, sustainable development, climate change, and comparative politics.

    Public vs. Private

    The Early History of School Choice in America

    Robert N. Gross, History Teacher and Assistant Academic Dean, Sidwell Friends School

    Key Features

    • Offers new interpretations of American educational and legal history that consider the central role played by private schools
    • Argues that public policies from over a century ago aided the rise of modern school choice
    • Reevaluates the historical relationship between states and Catholic schools
    • Uses schools to explore the broader relationship in American history between public authority and private enterprise

    About this book

    Americans choose from a dizzying array of schools, loosely categorized as "public" and "private." How did these distinctions emerge, and what do they tell us about the relationship in the United States between public authority and private enterprise? Challenged by the rise of Catholic and other parochial schools in the nineteenth century, states sought to protect the public school monopoly through regulation. Ultimately, however, Robert N. Gross shows how the public policies that resulted produced a stable educational marketplace, where choice flourished.

    Renewing Democracy in Young America

    Daniel Hart, Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, Rutgers University and James Youniss, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, The Catholic University of America

    Key Features

    • Argues that citizenship is a long-term psychological identity and that it's critical for youth to participate as citizens during the time of their identity formation
    • Proposes that 16- and 17-year-olds be able to vote in municipal elections and suggests that schools create science-based, community-oriented environmental engagement programs
    • Provides concrete examples of how long-term commitment to civic duties can be cultivated in youth through hands-on experiences

    About this book

    Political participation is paramount in a successful democracy, yet a strong sense of civic identity remains elusive in 21st century America. In Renewing Democracy in Young America, Hart and Youniss explore the idea that democracy depends on incorporating citizenship into long-term psychological identities. Proposing that 16- and 17-year-olds be able to vote in municipal elections and suggesting that schools create science-based, community-oriented environmental engagement programs, Hart and Youniss expound that by starting young and starting local, with direct citizen-participatory experiences, we can successfully create active and committed citizens.

    Subhuman

    The Moral Psychology of Human Attitudes to Animals

    T.J. Kasperbauer, Visiting Researcher at Kennedy Institute for Ethics, Georgetown University, beginning spring 2017, currently Research Associate at Potomac Institue for Policy Studies (Washington, DC)

    Key Features

    • Outlines an innovative approach to our moral obligations towards animals by exploring the psychological obstacles humans face in meeting ethical demands
    • Provides the first systematic account of the moral psychology behind human attitudes toward animals
    • Integrates research on attitudes toward animals from a variety of disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, law, sociology, and economics
    • Proposes what we should do when we fail to meet our own moral expectations in our treatment of animals

    About this book

    How do we think about animals? How do we decide what they deserve and how we ought to treat them? Subhuman takes an interdisciplinary approach to these questions, drawing from research in philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, law, history, sociology, economics, and anthropology. Subhuman argues that our attitudes to nonhuman animals, both positive and negative, largely arise from our need to compare ourselves to them.

    Readership

    Of interest to scholars and students in bioethics and animal rights, as well as those in moral philosophy who study these issues, or who are more broadly interested in the intersections of psychology and morality, and scholars in the interdisciplinary field of animal studies. It could be used in upper-level undergraduate courses, graduate courses, and should see a readership in the general public, among those interested in animal rights and humans' relationships with animals.
