Aimed at high school students, this review of the EPA covers both the traditions and controversies that have shaped this relatively new government agency. Collin (Willamette U., Federal Advisory Committee to the EPA, and Oregon's Governor on Environmental Justice) reviews the EPA's history and organizational structure, notable cases affecting the agency, daily activities, and future challenges. The text includes biographies of important EPA administrators, a chronology of key events, the executive order creating the agency, and principles of environmental justice.
