"...a straightforward survey and analysis of the enforcement activities of the Environmental Protection Agency."
—The Midwest Book Review
"My former colleagues in the environmental movement who now work on regulatory compliance for corporations have long told me on the quiet that their clients cannot help committing technical violations. Because EPA's rules are so shifting and muddled, even harmless and unwitting violations can be punished as crimes. In deciding whether to seek harsh punishment, the agency is driven more by EPA aggrandizement than environmental protection. These anonymous complaints have now been backed up with convincing proof in DeLong's crisp little book. EPA staffers should be sentenced to keep reading it until they wake up to the broader public interest."
—David Schoenbrod, Cofounder, Natural Resources Defense Council
"Out of Bounds demonstrates that federal agencies, in the absence of appropriate legislative checks, invariably tread on the rule of law, due process, and just about everything else that we hold dear. I believe this disturbing book represents the vanguard of a new, more responsible attitude toward environmental protection, which maintains both our liberties and a clean planet. Out of Bounds is a must read for all citizens who understand that without either of these our quality of life becomes gravely diminished, and that both are required for a healthy world."
