William Lowry studies American politics, public policy and political institutions with a special emphasis on natural resources, public lands and related environmental policiy issues. In recent years, Congressional Quarterly has called upon Lowry to write an updated chapter for the annual CQ Press book on environmental policy; his most recent chapter is titled: "A New Era in Natural Resource Policies?" ( 2003, Environmental Policy. 5th ed. Washington D.C.: CQ Press, 325-345).
Lowry also is the author of several books and numerous articles on environmental policy issues, including Dam Politics: Restoring America's Rivers (2003: Georgetown University Press); Preserving Public Lands for the Future: The Politics of Intergenerational Goods (1998, Georgetown University Press); The Capacity for Wonder: Preserving National Parks (1994: The Brookings Institution); and The Dimensions of Federalism: State Governments and Pollution Control Policies (1992, Duke University Press).
