The authors provide a broad conceptual overview of environmental law while also explaining the major statutes and cases. The first part of the book discusses the major themes and issues that cross-cut environmental law. The second part of the book examines the substance of environmental law, with separate sections on each of the major statutes. International issues such as ozone depletion, climate change, and transboundary waste disposal are also addressed. These chapters build on the conceptual framework in the first part of the text to integrate the discussion of individual statutes into a broad portrait of the law.
