About this book

Monitoring and enforcement issues must be analysed when determining the effectiveness of pollution control regulation, and clearly influence choices about how to regulate. This book demonstrates how an economic analysis of law enforcement can generate important insights into how best to enforce pollution control regulation. It seeks to provide a clear and accessible way into the law and economics literature on enforcement.

As regulation and enforcement take on increasing importance in the environmental policy realm, I applaud Abbot's effort to take a fresh look at this important topic. While contributing to existing literature and studies in this area, the book's value goes beyond a "mere" contribution. It illustrates how an economic analysis, such as the expanded deterrence model, can provide valuable insights about pollution control regulation...This book would be of great interest to those involved in environmental policymaking or regulation at both the national and international levels. It would also appeal to public law scholars...The book would be wonderful addition to graduate courses focused on environmental regulation and enforcement...This is one of the most innovative and refreshing books I have read on international environmental law in quite some time...a must read for anyone interested in this subject.
