Noncompliance by business has forced environmental law into a critical juncture. On one hand is the need to reduce violations and on the other is the need to respond to legitimate economic and management interests. Here, Professor DiMento offers policy reform programs geared to resolving these often-conflicting needs. By classifying illegal acts and linking them to the characteristics of non-complying companies--and critically reviewing strategies to influence these companies--DiMento reveals new deterrence possibilities. In addition, he explores the regulatory process with regard to enforcement; the interpretation of law; and the patterns, motivations, and interactions of groups that make, defy, and comply with environmental laws.
This groundbreaking volume will be rewarding reading for anyone involved in environmental law, environmental planning and design, law and society, criminology, sociology, political science, economics, and related fields of interest.
