Product Description

To give a solid foundation in environmental law doctrine as well as experience in building analytical skills, you can depend on this user-friendly casebook, Environmental Law and Policy: Nature, Law, and Society is noted for its comprehensive legal-process approach to the depth and complexity of modern environmental law:
Statutory and regulatory materials show the various ways in which statutes address environmental problems and point out the strengths and weaknesses of each generic statutory type to ensure that student knowledge does not become obsolete as statutes and regulations change;
In addition to traditional environmental law staples, the authors address hot topical areas, such as brownfielding of contaminated sites, risk assessment, regulation of toxics, hazardous materials, and discussion of the ongoing politics of environmental protection law;
Two completely new chapters: International Law as a Backdrop for Domestic Law and Cost-Benefit Procedures for Standard Setting;
Expanded coverage of market-enlisting approaches and government-industry partnerships for achieving environmental quality, the debates over command-and control, and the political history of environmental law;
Important new cases, including the Supreme Court s regulatory takings decisions in Palazzolo v. Rhode Island and Tahoe-Sierra Preservation Council, Inc. v. Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, American Trucking, Norfolk & Western Ry., Laidlaw Environmental Services, Solid Waste of Northern Cook County, and Borden Ranch, plus international arbitral decisions under NAFTA, including the first successful citizen-initiated fact finding procedures in the Migratory Bird treaty Act inquiry.
