"A comprehensive look at California's pioneering environmental and energy policy accomplishments, California Greenin' offers the first persuasive explanation for the aggressive and sometimes risky stands the state's political leaders have taken to protect air, water, and natural lands. This brisk book is a much-needed primer on the role of regulation in delivering major improvements in quality of life." Mary D. Nichols, chair of the California Air Resources Board. "David Vogel's thoughtful, engaging historical work explains how California evolved into an environmental policy leader, as competing economic interests and unusual alliances came together in reaction to serious pollution problems and threats to California's scenic beauty. This is a timely book for all who want to understand why California is at the forefront of current national efforts to slow climate change and protect the environment." Bruce Cain, Stanford University. "David Vogel pioneered the term "California effect" and demonstrated its enormous impact on numerous areas of environmental policy. This important book explains the historical and political factors that have underpinned the Golden State's enduring commitment to environmental protection and that continue to position it for national and global influence." Barry Rabe, University of Michigan. "Inspired by California's geography, a mobilized citizenry and frequently cooperative business community joined together to protect the Golden State's natural treasures - and this long tradition of strong environmental protection has contributed to the state's economic success. Vogel's provocative history of the California model shows a way forward to a greener future." Eric Rauchway, author of The Money Makers. "Although much has been written about the history of environmental policy and environmentalism in California, I am not aware of any single book that presents such a broad scope in terms of time (150+ years) and issue areas (mining, forests, coasts, water, air quality, and climate change). Readers will learn a tremendous amount about how natural resource management and environmental and energy policy have developed in California." David M. Konisky, coauthor of Cheap and Clean.
