Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This timely compendium reflects the work of the Next Generation Project, started in 1995 by the Yale Center for Environment Law and Policy to develop strategies for handling the environmental problems of the next 25 years. Separate chapters are authored by experts in law, business, and environmental science who participated in the project's symposia. The book gives an overview of the successes and failures of our existing fragmented and complex environmental regulations and offers new ideas for building an environmental policy structure based on analysis of whole systems and on policy tools that defuse confrontation between environmental protection and economic activity. The topics covered include overall concepts, such as industrial ecology and ecosystem management; implementation tools, such as pollution-charge systems and tradable permits; and special problems, such as habitat loss to suburbanization, automobile congestion and exhaust, and agricultural runoff. Recommended for academic libraries and environmental collections.Joan S. Elbers, Port Charlotte, Fla.
