International Environmental Law and Policy (2ND 07 Edition) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This dynamic casebook offers a coherent presentation of a complicated area:

- offers an introduction to international law and institutions as a foundation for the study of global norms applicable to environmental problems

- presents International Environmental Law in the 21st century, covering traditional issues such as transfrontier pollution and shared resource allocation and examining newer and emerging issues such as climate change, biological diversity and human rights implications

- takes an interdisciplinary approach in an analytical framework

- leads students from fundamental issues to sophisticated applications in four main parts:

The Nature of International Environmental Issues, Pollution Control, Natural Resource Management, and Trade and Finance

- thorough Teacher's Manual

The authors use a skillful blend of material to capture and hold student interest:

- detailed case studies

- convenient appendices on Researching International Environmental law, International Organizations, and General Steps in Formulating Multilateral Agreements

- detailed discussions of the relationship between international and domestic implementation of law

- in-depth coverage of the liability, accountability, and valuation of natural resource damages

Changes to the Second Edition include:

- new developments in international environmental law, including compliance with agreements, international health problems, biotechnology, developments in WTO and NAFTA, sustainable economic development, and accountability of international institutions

- the book is redesigned and condensed to make the materials readily accessible to a broad variety of students, bothin the United States and abroad

- the rewritten introductory chapter now begins with a short history of international environmental law, the nature of international environmental problems, and political and economic contexts

- several new case studies demonstrate the major problems involved in international environmental law and highlight the many interests surrounding treaty negotiations

Book News Annotation:

This law school course book combines analytic materials on international environmental law with discussion of real life issues. For this second edition, the authors (of Georgetown U. School of Law, McGeorge School of Law, and Chicago-Kent College of Law) have maintained an approach that stresses the links between international and domestic law, the merging of public and private international law in certain cases, and the relevance of social and natural science in the development and implementation of international environmental law. Their treatment includes coverage of basic concepts and context regarding international environmental protection, general and specific norms of pollution control, national resources management, and issues of trade and finance. A series of appendices provide a guide to further research, information on international organization, basic materials on the steps followed in the negotiation and ratification of multilateral agreements, and materials on the international protection of national sites.
