Overview

For this fourth edition of a comprehensive introduction to environmental law, Percival (environmental law, U. of Maryland School of Law) adds new chapters on environmental impact assessment and preservation of biodiversity, plus updated cases and new exercises. The text invites students to explore how law is related to the larger problems society seeks to solve through collective action, and it focuses on the political, economic, and ethical concerns that shape regulatory policy. To make material accessible to nonspecialists, there are charts mapping the structure of each of the major environmental statutes, problems and questions based on real-world controversies, an extensive glossary, and a list of acronyms.
