  • Description

    Environmental Protection: Law and Policy, widely respected for its intellectual breadth and depth, is an interdisciplinary and international overview of the fundamental issues of Environmental Law, incorporating history, theory, litigation, regulation, policy, science, economics, and ethics. It includes a complete introduction to the history of environmental protection; laws and regulations; regulatory design strategies; policy objectives; and analysis of constitutional federalism and related policy questions concerning the design and implementation of environmental protection programs. Coverage includes the major federal pollution control laws (the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, CERCLA, and more); climate change (a chapter discussing important scientific, policy, and program design questions); natural resource management issues (two chapters focusing on the National Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species Act); and national forest management.
