Kehoe, Terence. Cleaning Up the Great Lakes: From Cooperation to Confrontation. Dekalb: Northern Illinois University Press, 1997.

Environmental and policy history intersect in this unique case study of national water pollution control policy during the seminal decades of environmental activism. Kehoe uses events in the Great Lakes region to investigate broader changes in American public policy during the era of public interest that extended from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. These include the nationalization of policy, the breakdown of trust in institutions, and a greater reliance on formal legal mechanisms to resolve conflict and perceived injustices. — Northern Illinois University Press website.
