Regulating Health, Safety, and
Environmental Risks in Europe and
the United States

David Vogel

“This is comparative
politics at its very
best. Vogel takes the
reader on a fascinating
transatlantic journey
to show how and why
regulatory leadership
shifts with political
pressures, elite prefer-
ences, and new views
on risk management.
His book should be
required reading for everyone concerned about
the safety of man and environment.”
—Lennart J. Lundqvist, University of Gothenburg,
Sweden

The Politics of Precaution examines the politics of
consumer and environmental risk regulation in
the United States and Europe over the last fve
decades, explaining why America and Europe
have often regulated a wide range of similar risks
diferently.

David Vogel is professor at the Haas School of
Business and in the Department of Political Sci-
ence at the University of California, Berkeley.
