About this book

Contemporary Issues in Environmental Law and Policy is a major new interdisciplinary study in environmental law, providing a point of reference for the analysis of key concepts. It examines the fundamental issues likely to dictate the future direction of this fascinating field in the western world as well as those confronting developing countries. The authors take the Kyoto Treaty as well as the recent discussions on the environment at the G8 summit in 2005 into account. This important book offers an analytical appraisal of the unique blend of regulation, theory, science and policy that are the foundations of environmental law.
