In this well-written, well-researched book, Daniel Fiorino builds a compelling case for the kind of growth that will bolster our economy, improve incomes, protect the health of the American people, and ensure that the natural resources on which we depend, our economy included, remain productive. He does a superb job laying to rest the old canard that a healthy economy and a healthy environment are at odds. --William K. Reilly, Administrator, U.S. EPA, 1989-93 This terrific and much-needed book provides a compelling analysis that should be essential reading for all students interested in the politics of decarbonizing the economy and greening of the state. --Karin Backstrand, Stockholm University Fiorino makes a compelling case that green growth is an essential transformation of our political-economy and culture as we seek to mitigate the harmful effects of the depletion of nature resources, climate change, and growth of the human population. A must-read for any and all concerned about our future. --Daniel A. Mazmanian, University of Southern California
