About this book

This study is written for those who seek effective ways of controlling environmental pollution. Indeed, many developing and East European states look to the experience of the United States and Western Europe. The book does not, however, concentrate on any one system of control or control laws, but succeeds in introducing the exact nature of pollution problems and the variety of ways in which effective control and management have been achieved. Rather than advocate a ready-made system, lessons are drawn for example from the UK, USA, Sweden, Denmark, France, Germany and New Zealand, and instructive legislative samples are reproduced, the place of international obligations being clearly marked out. The wide-ranging comparative approach adopted renders this handbook yet more valuable, based as it is on the premise that a control system is better if it is built on existing institutional and legal structures. It should interest all who advise on environmental matters on a daily basis, particularly senior administrators, policy makers, institutions, legal advisers and researchers.


Environmental pollution; systems of administration; techniques of control; enforcement; civil liability; rights of individuals; polluter pays principle; international obligations. Appendices: United Kingdom; United States of America; Sweden; Denmark; France; Federal Republic of Germany; New Zealand; examples of existing legislative provisions.
