Overview

If you're ready to tackle the fundanmental questions surrounding modern environmental law, this comprehensive revision of the classic casebook is your ideal teaching tool. In ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: Law and Policy, Third Edition, the authors closely examine the premise that environmental law has progressed from an anti-pollution, and anti-public works movement to a more established perspective that influences all decisions on the use of natural resources. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: Law and Policy, leads students to a deep understanding of the legal, policy, and regulatory aspects, one step at a time by:

  • Opening the book with two cases that raise basic issues - 'What is environmentalism?' and 'What are the sources of environmental law/' - that immediately show the relevance of the interdisciplinary material.
  • Advancing the discussion with a blend of foundational cases and the latest court decisions to explore important topics.
  • Offering more accessible notes that present basic information about the purpose of regulatory programs and also provide alternative and supplementary perspectives on the principle cases.
  • Integrating domestic and international environmental law to show how U.S. law has shaped international law and how evolving international norms are influencing U.S. law.
  • Drawing interdisciplinary materials from the three major sources of environmentalism - science, ethics, and economics - convey the underpinnings of environmental law a well as their limits.
  • Asking pointed questions so students can develop their own perspectives on the pros and cons of various policy instruments.
  • Incorporating charts and graphics throughout the book for more engaging discussions and greater accessibility.

  • the extent to which environmental law builds on the common law of torts
  • the changing nature of regulatory programs, with separate chapters on the Clean Water and the Clean Air Acts
