Summary: If you're ready to tackle the fundanmental questions surrounding modern environmental law, this comprehensive revision of the classic casebook is your ideal teaching tool. In ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: Law and Policy, Third Edition, the authors closely examine the premise that environmental law has progressed from an anti-pollution, and anti-public works movement to a more established perspective that influences all decisions on the use of natural resources.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION: Law and Policy, leads students to a deep understanding of the legal, policy, and regulatory aspects, one step at a time by:
Opening the book with two cases that raise basic issues - "What is environmentalism?' and "What are the sources of environmental law/" - that immediately show the relevance of the interdisciplinary material.
Advancing the discussion with a blend of foundational cases and the latest court decisions to explore important topics.
Offering more accessible notes that present basic information about the purpose of regulatory programs and also provide alternative and supplementary perspectives on the principle cases.
Integrating domestic and international environmental law to show how U.S. law has shaped international law and how evolving international norms are influencing U.S. law.
Drawing interdisciplinary materials from the three major sources of environmentalism - science, ethics, and economics - convey the underpinnings of environmental law a well as their limits.
Asking pointed questions so students can develop their own perspectives on the pros and cons of various policy instruments.
Incorporating charts and graphics throughout the book for more engaging discussions and greater accessibility.
The authors cover all the traditional course topics, including:
  • the extent to which environmental law builds on the common law of torts
  • the changing nature of regulatory programs, with separate chapters on the Clean Water and the Clean Air Acts
