This new title meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the rapidly growing and ever more complex are of Environmental law. As well as bringing together the finest work of legal scholarship, this four-volume collection places environmental regulation in a multidisciplinary context and includes vital work from economists, political scientists, philosophers, ethicists, historians and natural scientists to illuminate the many different perspectives which inform and influence law's response to environmental problems.
The first volume (`Environmental Law in Context') assembles work on the difficulties of drawing the borders of the subject to examine and explore the past, present and future of environmental law. The second volume (`Perspectives on Environmental Problems') collects the key research from different perspectives on environmental challenges, ranging from economic justifications for regulatory intervention to ethical considerations and modern forms of environmental governance. Volume 3 (`Law and Environmental Problems') gathers the most important work on the development and role of law in solving environmental problems. The scholarship assembled in the final volume (`Regulating Environmental Problems') covers the different modes of regulating environmental problems. It addresses contentious issues such as the most appropriate level at which to regulate, and the best institutional arrangements in which to implement regulation.
The material contained in the four volumes of Environmental Law covers global themes, crosses jurisdictional borders, captures different theoretical perspectives and elucidates numerous substantive areas of the subject both to provide an intellectual justification of the foundations of environmental law and to stake out the boundaries of this once amorphous topic. It is destined to be valued by scholars and students of environmental law, as well as those working in allied areas, as a vital one-stop research resource.
