Energy Policy: The REEL World : Cases and Materials on Resources, Energy, and Environmental Law
The title of this up-to-date casebook emphasizes that it surveys numerous fields. In addition to covering the two main subjects with which traditional energy law deals -- the laws with which an energy producer must comply and the government regulation of energy producers -- this book also covers the intertwining of environmental law and energy law.
Mansfield first examines the basic legal framework of U.S. energy policy and law, considering constitutional issues such as federalism and the limits of regulatory authority; traditional economic regulation; various energy fuel cycles; and federal and state regulation of natural gas, electricity, and hydroelectric power.
After completing this overview, Mansfield offers a general introduction of environmental law, discussing such topics as coal, uranium, alternative energy sources, as well as access to water, public lands, and Native American lands. Classroom-tested at several schools, this new book will be of great interest to those who teach in the fields of regulated industries, oil and gas, or natural resources.
