The Greening of U.S. Foreign Policy


Terry L. Anderson and Henry I. Miller, M.D. Editors

Since then Secretary of State Warren Christopher's announcement in 1996 of an increased emphasis on environmental issues, the environmental movement has moved the policy agenda beyond local and even national boundaries into the foreign policy debate. In this book, a group of scholars takes a hard look at how environmental concerns have come to help determine U.S. foreign policy.

This collection of essays ultimately illustrates how expensive the greening of U.S. foreign policy has become and tells how we can find alternatives to government intervention based on free market environmentalism. If the threats of environmentalism are as real as we are led to believe, they can be handled better by returning to the traditional principles of the free society based on the rule of law.
