a detailed examination of policy that goes beyond an explanation of the regulatory structure to explore the political, economic, and ethical concerns that influence policy and enforcement

effective teaching and study aids including charts and diagrams that map the structure of each major environmental statute, problems and questions based on real—life situations, and "pathfinders" to explain where to locate crucial source materials

a website (http://www.law.umaryland.edu/courses/environment) that continually updates subjects covered in the book with links that enable students to learn more about topics of interest

detailed suggestions for teaching from the book provided in an extensive Teacher's Manual

engaging and student—friendly text that demystifies the field

Updated coverage of the Clean Air Act

New chapter on Land Use Regulation and Regulatory Policy

Broader coverage of issues of federalism and congressional authority
