Environmental regulation: law, science, and policy
This textbook is founded on the conviction that a "second generation" approach to environmental law is necessary because of the dramatic changes that have occurred in our understanding of environmental problems and society's responses to them. This text seeks to broaden students' vision by inviting them to explore how law relates to the larger problems society seeks to solve through collective action.
