An excellent review of this new book by Lee Botts and Paul Muldoon is now available on line at the website of the Lansing City Pulse:

Even the new push for Great Lakes cleanup measures is giving short shrift to the binational treaty that got the Lakes back on their feet in the ?70s. If there were no treaty, the authors ask in a rare show of emotion, ?would there be a Great Lakes community of environmentalists, scientists, industry and governments at every level working together peacefully toward the same goals and objectives? And how would they know what to do??

?This is not the time to start from scratch,? they implore. Their argument for a ?renewed and strengthened? binational agreement is a sober, heavyweight contribution to a debate that is bound to grow more passionate and urgent in the coming years.
