This is the first textbook in the English language dealing with international environmental law, an area of law which has exploded during the past five years. Drawing on their long experience in the field the authors have produced a masterly survey of the burgeoning literature, an analysis of numerous unanswered questions, and an examination of huge fields of law which have previously been untouched by scholars. This will be essential reading for anyone interested in environmental law.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A very welcome addition to the growing list of books on international environmental law. This is perhaps the best single book thus far in this rapidly evolving area of global concern. Written in a very accessible style, the book covers the entire landscape of issues, related treaties, and other material concerning ecological quandry in sufficient detail while maintaining the economy of expression. It is an impressive presentation of complex issues and not so easily accessible material. it is an excellent text book for use in college and law schools; the material can be effectively utilized in several specialty courses such as: international studies, environmental affairs, and environmental law....The authors must be congratulated for producing a fine book. Most certainly the book has established itself as the first comprehensive textbook on international environmental law."--Dickinson Journal of Environmental Law & Policy

"[A]n authoritative 'nutshell' of the law conterning protection of the world's environment."--American Society of International Law

"A streamlined introduction to the field....Each topic is presented clearly and thoroughly, with useful footnotes to relevant decisions and documents."--Yale Journal of International Law
